Article Summary:

According to Cleaning the Glass, in the 701 non-garbage time possessions, the Celtics have played with both Smart and Tatum on the bench, Boston has been outscored by a shocking 7.9 points per 100 possessions.

As Tatum himself noted, the Celtics seem to have made a conscious decision to start resting Tatum to prepare for the playoffs. On the year, the Celtics are just second in bench-scoring, but sixth in bench plus-minus.

Brad Stevens, too, assuaged those fears post-game, telling Forbes’ Chris Grenham, “I don’t want to make our generalizations about our bench until we have our roster in full.” He went on to mention that the team’s bench has never really been fully healthy and that he’ll see how it goes when they’re healthy.
