During the Celtics 128-120 series-clinching win over the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday night, there was one massive bright spot late in the game that swung momentum towards Boston: Grant Williams. Once a staple piece of the Celtics rotation, Williams had for some reason fallen out of favor and not gotten as much run as last season, especially in games that warranted it. In Game 5 as the Celtics were trying to stay in it, Joe Mazzulla turned to veteran Blake Griffin over Grant, which is puzzling.
However, on Thursday, the Celtics turned to their tweener forward, who racked up 17 minutes and gave some crucial energy and defense to a team desperately trying to put the game to bed. With the Philadelphia 76ers waiting for them, The Garden Report’s Bobby Manning calls for more Grant Williams minutes.
