Iíd like to see Robert Williams get a minimum of 20-25 minutes a game. Heís averaging 6.8ppg, 6.5rpg, 1stl, and 1.5blk in only 15 minutes of play. Shooting 77% from the field and 86% from the FT line. His per is 26.31 which is 10th in the NBA and 1st on the Celtics.

If his minutes were doubled would he average 13.6ppg, 13rpg, 2stl, and 3blk? Iím not sure, however, I do feel like he has more of an impact on the game than either Theis or Thompson. Theis seems to have regressed this year and Iíve been quite disappointed in Thompson, who is averaging 8ppg, 8rpg, 0.8blk.. His D doesnít seem great and offensively heís inept. RW3 is the only big the Celtics have with any upside.

Too early for Thompson....played in or started 78 playoff games.

I agree he isn't in sync yet, but, my guess is Stevens has him playing with Theis at the start of games to help Thompson get in sync by playoff time.

Robert has looked really good. He has found his own "NBA game" and it is good. His decisions are sharp and confident. He was always an excellent passer. He sprints the floor which is a big deal for a center in the NBA. His timing on blocks is good. He isn't watching the game anymore he is impacting it.

Opponents seem to be attacking him on defense, but he seems better. Much more involved with his mates on the court.

He has had all of this in flashes up to this season, but now it seems to be coming together.

When he's on the court he can jump higher than any other player on either team. I think he has learned to use his athleticism to good effect.

He'll start some games this year which is good.

I am a huge fan of this bench group...

Pritchard
Tatum or Brown
Semi
Grant
Robert

Robert and Grant complement each other and Pritchard knows how to get Robert some jams.

We should watch these guys closely...if they get really tight? Title teams need great benches.

Once Kemba comes back, the starting lineup will most likely be:

Kemba, Smart, Brown, Tatum, Thompson.

Bench: Pritchard, Teague, Theis, R Williams, Semi, Langford

DNPís: Nesmith, Taco, G Williams, Waters, Edwards, Greene

Thatís a pretty solid starting lineup and bench...
