Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Ime Udoka said that Rob Williams wasn’t dealing with anything physical. He said that the team was trying to manage Williams’ minutes, and him not coming back in was the result of Al Horford making big plays late in the game. – 11:06 AM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA I love Marcus Smart. Always have, always will. And he’s a modern point guard, so stop with all the “Need a point guard stuff.”, especially when you don’t even know what that means in today’s game. But 4-of-15 and 1-of-9 doesn’t cut it. Just a brutal game from him. – 11:59 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA Celtics finally back to taking advantage of Lowry as the low man with quick cuts to draw Bam up and one-time oop it to Rob Williams, who can grab it out of the sky where nobody else can go. – 10:27 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps I swear the Celtics continually try to throw lobs higher and higher to see if Robert Williams can come down with it. He somehow does every time. – 10:27 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba Robert Williams is just an incredible rim protector. Jimmy Butler had Brown beaten. Williams comes over and changes the layup…. – 9:46 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Marcus Smart is telling all of the Celtics to calm down after that foul call against Derrick White. Zach Zarba just warned both teams about complaining. But that was a very soft foul call against White. – 9:41 PM

Filipino basketball player Kai Sotto was undrafted in the 2022 NBA Draft, temporarily delaying his dream of becoming the first-ever Philippine-born player in the NBA. The 20-year-old was not selected in the 2022 NBA Rookie Draft that took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Thursday. “The dream is always the NBA, so I’ll always have to do whatever it takes to get better, stronger, to improve,” Sotto said.
