Celtics lineup preview: in defense of going small

Article Summary:

The Celtics under Brad Stevens regularly played one of Brown or Tatum with the second unit so it was rare to see reserves altogether at 1 thru 4 spots.

Our suggestion for a deep and cohesive first and second unit would be to replace Horford in the starting group with second-year guard Payton Pritchard. Second, Pritchard fits well as an off-ball threat next to Tatum, Brown and the rolling threat of Williams. To me, starting a little smaller not only provides positive shooting while both Tatum and Brown are on the floor but doesn’t hamper the size of Boston’s second unit.
