This game showed a lot about the future of the C’s season, so let’s look at 3 takeaways from the contest:
Boston Celtics takeaway No. 1) The dominance of Robert Williams
Robert Williams has been forced into a much larger role over the past few weeks, with both Al Horford and Grant Williams sidelined.
In 34 minutes on the night, Williams recorded 21 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists, two blocks, and two steals.
Known for his high-flying ability and athleticism, Williams had multiple impressive finishes around the rim. Despite the high differential, Williams is much quicker and has a higher vertical leap, with Fall unable to deter the alley-oop offense.
