This extended stretch without Robert Williams will benefit the Celtics long term

Robert Williams defends a shot from Klay Thompson during Game 6 of the NBA Finals. | Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports Players have adapted to expanded roles in Robert Williams’ absence. Once he’s back, Boston should be even more of a juggernaut. One of the obvious early-season subplots this year is that the Celtics have taken a step back defensively. Another subplot is the absence of Robert Williams III. It just so happens that the two are directly related. The Celtics are missing one of the best rim protectors and most savvy big men in the league, and it’s...

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports The Boston Celtics are on a roll! I’m nearly out of adjectives! Exclamation point! If I’m dreaming, don’t wake me. This Boston Celtics team has the best record in the league, the best offense in the league, a top candidate for MVP, and we still haven’t played a game with Robert Williams III yet. No matter who sits out a game or two, someone else steps up and contributes to winning. This team is hungry, focused, and mature.

We’re (still) going streaking: short-handed Celtics demolish Hawks, 126-101 to win eighth-straight game

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ It wasn’t ever really close. We could get used to this. If you really think about it, the Boston Celtics had no business winning tonight’s game in Atlanta. For one, they were playing without Marcus Smart (ankle), Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring), and Robert Williams III, who has yet to play this season due to the surgery he had on his left knee in the offseason. In addition to their dwindling depth, the Hawks match up incredibly well with the Celtics, especially the way they’ve been playing so far this season. Atlanta is off to its best 14-game...

Does the Celtics hot start on offense make the need of a championship-level defense less important?

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ Boston has been on fire, but they’ve been burned, too. For all the hand wringing about losing Robert Williams for the start of the year and finding a backup big man to replace him, the Celtics have continued their stinginess in two key areas: rim protection and contesting at the three-point line. Their defensive rating (113.7) is nowhere near where it was in the second half of last year (105.2 after the turn of the new year), but you can see the framework coming into view. During their remarkable turnaround last season, the Celtics gave up the...
