I've always been a Derek white fan ever since we traded for him. I wasn't very worried about his shot making ability. I have just been extremely happy with the way he plays.

White was awesome last game, as he and Horford held down the fort until the Jays were finally ready to start scoring. He also filled up the stat sheet in game 4 and was much more engaged on both ends of the floor. This is promising moving forward, as it was getting tiring arguing about his impact beyond the box score and whether or not it mattered that he couldn't shoot.

Hopefully he goes out and puts up another solid game tonight in a win and he carries over his confidence into the Finals. White made a concerted effort after game 3 to be more 'aggressive' (in his own words) and it has paid off.

His shot still hasn't come around but I'm confident it'll improve. In the meantime, if he's being aggressive and finishing at the rim, his defense and quick decision making  have been huge for the Celtics.

Derrick is versatile, plays his role well, defends well, pushes the pace, and constantly makes the right play.

His lack of 3P efficiency is one of his few weaknesses and he only shoots it when heís open and thereís no better option available.

He already has been and will continue to be an asset in the Finals.
With 2 top 20 scorers that are all around players still improving, an elite defense, youth, experience, and veteran leadership, we have all of the ingredients of a contender. In a 7 game series, I like our chances against any team including Milwaukee.

He's been great his whole time here.  He's a better shooter from 3pt then he has been but it's his all around game that's been so great.

We'll see the hustle, the defense, and the passing/moving of the ball... but we won't likely see the Steph Curry impression anytime soon.
