Daniel Theis continues to be steady for Celtics

Article Summary:

Boston lacks depth at the center spot and Theis’ strong play has given the Celtics a much-needed presence at the position.

And while most of Theis’ offensive game comes from being the beneficiary of playmaking from him teammates like Tatum, he continues to improve on that side of the court into a reliable option, which is why Gordon Hayward trusted Theis in one of the game’s biggest moments against the Pacers.

After the Celtics had squandered a 19-point lead and fell behind by three with under two minutes remaining, Hayward was in position to finish a layup, but kicked it out to Theis, who looked like he was going to pass to completely fake out Aaron Holiday before drilling a game-tying 3-pointer.

In 10 games since the All-Star break, Theis has been averaging close to a double-double by tallying 13.9 points and 8.1 rebounds.
