With Jaylen Brown out due to a positive COVID-19 test, there were plenty of interesting takeaways to be hadbut let’s narrow it down to 3:
Boston Celtics takeaway No. 1) Double bigs are back?
By the end of last season, just hearing the phrase “Double big” was enough to make Boston Celtics fans nationwide physically cringe.
In fact, in terms of net rating, the Thompson-Theis double big lineup was ranked 87th out of 191 two-man rotations the Cs ran last year. We only experienced double bigs, to be frank, with lesser talent.
There were little to no deficiencies with these two on the court, and with the questions the Celtics have at two-guard, maybe they consider the return of the double bigs.
