Article Summary:

On Tuesday night, as the Celtics tipped off their five-game road trip against the Golden State Warriors, that player was Grant Williams.

“Smart being the heart and soul of our team and being the guy that leads us on that end of the court, with him being out we have to step up,” Williams said after his big game. “Not just myself, but Semi [Ojeleye] and other guys did a lot of great things. Guys made a lot of good plays. My job was being able to communicate what was coming and being able to help guys understand that there is a priority on the floor, to make sure to get there and cover each other and have each other’s backs.”

“He’s really smart and he pays attention to detail. He’s constantly yelling out whatever the other team is doing,” said Kemba Walker “He’s just a real talkative guy out there and we need that.”

The second-year undersized big was opportunistic on Tuesday, and it led to some good things happening for the Celtics on both ends of the floor. “We have a lot of great players that get you great looks and you can’t be shy to take them. But I’m confident in my shot and just trying to continue to grow and progress as time goes on.”

A sure sign of some shooting maturity came on Williams’ last splash of the evening.
