Stephen Lew-USA TODAY Sports The 28-year-old did a little bit of everything this week to keep the Celtics moving amidst injuries in their backcourt We love to see undefeated weeks, don’t we, folks? We’re through our fifth week of NBA basketball this season, and the Boston Celtics were riding a nine-game winning streak, surging to the best record in basketball in the process. This week’s victims included the upstart Oklahoma City Thunder, the Atlanta Hawks (third place in the Eastern Conference as of this writing) and the New Orleans Pelicans (sans phenom Zion...

Derrick White’s stepping up to the plate

Photo by Ned Dishman/NBAE via Derrick White has been solid to start the season. To begin the season, Derrick White was ever-present in the Boston Celtics' starting lineup, yet in recent weeks, he had re-assumed the bench role we saw him occupy last season. White had done nothing wrong, and his performances were exactly what we’d come to expect from him, possibly even better than we expect due to his increased three-point shooting. However, Joe Mazzulla was searching for some defensive improvements, so, Grant Williams was inserted into the starting five, and the...

Photo By Winslow Townson/ The veteran guard dropped 26 points in Boston’s win over the Pelicans on Friday night. The Boston Celtics pushed their win streak to nine games on Friday night, taking down the New Orleans Pelicans in a 117-109 victory. Jaylen Brown led the team in scoring with 27 points, but Jayson Tatum struggled a bit, shooting just 6-of-19 from the field. While he made up for his subpar efficiency with a 10-assist night, someone needed to step up in the scoring column. That someone was Derrick White. The veteran guard poured in 26 points, his...

Derrick White ‘Carried’ Celtics To Ninth Straight Win Vs. Pelicans

The Boston Celtics win streak, now nine following Friday’s 117-109 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans, lives on due in large part to the contributions delivered by veteran point guard Derrick White. On Wednesday against the Atlanta Hawks, White was tasked with filling the void in the wake of Malcolm Brogdon and Marcus Smart’s absences, […] The post Derrick White ‘Carried’ Celtics To Ninth Straight Win Vs.

In tonight’s game, they played a New Orleans team that had won three straight despite missing Zion Williamson. As the game tipped off, color commentator Brian Scalabrine said, “I’m worried about his game, I’m just being honest.” But as we’ve learned from his last five season on the broadcast, Scal is wrong more often than not, and Boston would win tonight’s game 117-109 as they welcomed back Malcom Brogdon.

Heading into Friday’s game, the Boston Celtics will be hoping to extend their win streak to 9 straight games, although the New Orleans Pelicans will hope to provide a stern test. Without Marcus Smart, the Celtics will once again find some additional minutes for Payton Pritchard and place some additional workload on the shoulders of Derrick White. However, Malcolm Brogdon being declared available to play is certainly a boost heading into the contest. Furthermore, Zion Williamson is listed...

Boston’s bench mob

Photo By Winslow Townson/ It’s early, but Joe Mazzulla has seemingly settled on his second unit. After boasting the most dominating starting five in the league last year, Brad Stevens built a bench to match it in the offseason. The plan was to add Malcolm Brogdon and Derrick White to an already ferocious defensive back court and surround the Celtics’ stars with shooters like Danilo Gallinari and Grant Williams. However, injuries have forced head coach Joe Mazzulla to pivot early in the regular season. Over the last four games, Mazzulla seems to have settled on a...
