Kornet contributed 10 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five rebounds and two assists in 13 minutes during Sunday's 139-110 victory over the Grizzlies. Celtics head coach Ime Udoka went to the bench early in this one, as Boston held a commanding lead and wanted to keep its regulars fresh for the postseason. Kornet took advantage of the increased opportunity by scoring a season-high 10 points and grabbing at least five rebounds for the third time this season.
Kornet registered four points (2-2 FG), three rebounds and one block over eight minutes in Sunday's 144-102 home win over the Wizards. Boston blew out the Wizards, allowing coach Ime Udoka to play all of his bench players. The recent injury to center Robert Williams (knee) has only meant a minor uptick in minutes for Kornet. Over the Boston's last seven games, the seven-footer has averaged 6.4 minutes per game, with three DNP's. Between stints with the Celtics, Cavaliers and Bucks, Kornet has played in a dozen games this season.
Kornet logged 19 points (8-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven blocks, six rebounds, five assists and one steal across 27 minutes during Thursday's 107-87 win over the Motor City Cruise. Though he almost scored 20 points and distributed the ball well Thursday, Kornet's block tally was an unparalleled standout. His 7-foot-2 height will be helpful for a Maine Celtics team lacking good rim protection without him. And despite not starting against Motor City, there is the possibility Kornet could start in place of teammate John Bohannon soon.
Kornet was assigned to the G League's Maine Celtics on Thursday. Kornet saw minimal playing time with Boston after joining the Celtics on a contract for the rest of the season in mid-February. He should see additional playing time in the G League.
The Celtics are planning to sign Kornet to a rest-of-season contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. After Thursday's trades, the Celtics were left with five open roster spots, and Kornet will help give Boston some more depth in the frontcourt. He has some familiarity with the franchise, as he played 18 games with Boston last season and has been seeing G League minutes for the Maine Celtics this year. Kornet will presumably continue seeing most of his action in the G League.
