Celtics Find Out They Missed Tristan Thompson

    The Garden Report discusses the return of Tristan Thompson and his big night against the Knicks. How does his physicality help Boston?


    The Garden Report discusses big man Tristian Thompson’s play and impact, as he returns to the team after missing the last few weeks due to COVID-19. Finishing the night with seven points, eight rebounds, and three blocks, the Celtics felt Thompson’s presence, as they were +24 with him on the court tonight and -22 without him on the floor. The crew compares his game tonight to fellow big man Robert Williams, and plays with the idea about another lineup change?

    Also, they raise the question, why couldn’t Thompson play 24-hours sooner in a bigger game versus the 76ers, and how much of a difference would it have made?
