Evan Fournier’s off ball impact makes him a perfect fit in Celtics offense

Article Summary:

Fournier could easily stay behind the three-point line and wait for a pass, but taking the guaranteed layup is obviously the better play here, and he recognizes that.

Later, Fournier creates an opportunity for himself with a pretty clever slide from the corner to where Smart has a better angle to get him the ball:

If Fournier doesn’t move at all, Smart has to throw a higher-arcing pass over the defense. Fournier said after the loss to the Heat, “When you fix things just by being more aggressive and turning it up, it just shows a lack of physicality in my opinion.” But what do these things mean? What is an offensive identity supposed to be? There’s no wrong answer, but having every player involved in the offense as much as possible is mine.

If the stars align, we’ll soon see Fournier play with Boston’s full roster in games that matter.
