Enes Kanter returns from his knee injury tonight and the Celtics recalled Romeo Langford from his one-game stint in Maine, two players absent from Boston’s current seven-game win streak.

Why the Celtics’ interior defense is better than advertised

Why the Celtics’ interior defense is better than advertised

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports The Celtics have Enes Kanter, Robert Williams, Vincent Poirier, and Daniel Theis to play center. So who closes games at the five spot? Marcus Smart. Follow @taco_haus From the start, Boston’s interior defense looked doomed. The Celtics loaded up on centers to start their season in hopes of one or two sticking as solid rotation players. Daniel Theis, now in his third year with the team, has unsurprisingly emerged as one of them. Enes Kanter, to injury or otherwise, hasn’t impressed in the early going. Robert Williams has been a plus, but is still slow...

Avoiding the next hiccup: Celtics minutes, bench production, and ball movement

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports The Celtics have started the season 4-1 and there’s good cheer all around, but there are potholes In his weekend column for The Boston Herald, Stephen Bulpett outlined one of the Celtics biggest weakness (particularly without Enes Kanter and Robert Williams against the Knicks): defensive rebounding. New York outscored Boston 20-5 on second chance points on Friday night, but the Celtics escaped with a win on a Jayson Tatum jumper at the end of regulation.

They came from teammates and onlookers, as the hushed murmurs made their rounds and grew louder with every offseason workout Gordon Hayward participated in.
