Article Summary:

Against the Lakers, Stevens utilized Daniel Theis and Robert Williams in a rotational lineup, and the results were electric.

Operating with Theis and Williams provides the Celtics with a versatile duo whose skill sets complement each other’s game. What about Anthony Davis? Well, he’s the one with the tough choice to make – does he pinch in to provide weakside rim protection or push up to challenge any attempt to feed Theis the ball?

Walker sells the interior pass, causing Davis to dig in an attempt to tag Williams, allowing Theis to receive the ball in shooting motion before firing away for an easy three.

The Celtics defense became a challenging proposition when Theis and Williams patrolled the paint together, posting an absurd defensive rating of 86.2.
