  • Celtics' Grant Williams: Explodes for game-high 27 points

    Williams accumulated 27 points (10-22 FG, 7-18 3Pt), six rebounds and two blocks over 39 minutes during Sunday's 109-81 victory over the Bucks in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

    The Bucks' defensive gameplan forced Williams to take an uncharacteristically large amount of shots, but the defensive-minded forward reveled in the moment and exploded for career highs in made threes and points. The third-year forward scored 20-plus points twice in the second-round series against the Bucks, but he totaled just 28 points in the other five games. Despite the breakout performance, it's likely the Tennessee product's role is reduced during the Eastern Conference Finals with Robert Williams (knee) expected to be available with no minutes restrictions.

  • Celtics' Grant Williams: Starting for Horford

    Williams will start Sunday's game against the Timberwolves, Celtics play-by-play man Sean Grande reports.

  • Celtics' Grant Williams: Moving back to bench

  • Celtics' Grant Williams: Posts double-double in start

    Williams closed with 20 points (7-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist and one block in 38 minutes during Monday's 132-123 victory over the Thunder.

    Grant Williams entered the starting lineup Monday in place of Robert Williams (knee), who was rested for the second game of a back-to-back set. The former put together his best game of the season, registering his first double-double with season highs in points and rebounds. Robert Williams will likely return to the starting unit for Wednesday's game against Utah, so Grant Williams isn't a priority fantasy pickup despite his big game against OKC.
