Defense

While undersized in the NBA at 6-foot-1, Pritchard was still able to be an effective defender in some matchups through sheer determination and solid basketball IQ.

Intangibles

Surprisingly composed and professional for a rookie, Pritchard typically attacked with a high motor most nights, though he did seem to become a little more timid after Jaylen Brown inadvertently caused him to miss time in January with an inadvertent collision.
