Celtics' Marcus Morris: Leads C's in minutes, despite not starting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris generated 13 points (5-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt), six rebounds and one steal across 37 minutes in Wednesday's 96-83 ECF Game 5 win over the Cavaliers.

Morris came of the bench in Game 5, but still led the Celtics in minutes played. Coach Brad Stevens decided to replace Morris in the starting lineup with Aron Baynes to counter Tristan Thompson's rugged rebounding. No matter, as Morris still delivered clutch three point shooting and contributed to a team defensive effort that appeared to exhaust LeBron James. Morris and his Celtics teammates will now try to wrap up the series Friday night in Cleveland.

Celtics' Terry Rozier: Three steals in Game 5 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rozier delivered eight points (3-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, six assists and three steals across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 96-83 ECF Game 5 win over the Cavaliers.

Rozier suffered another rough shooting night, but was a major part of Boston's successful defensive effort, helping limit the Cavs to only 83 points. Rozier's three steals stand out, but it was his ability to avoid being isolated on LeBron James that highlighted an improved Celtic approach on defense. The third year point guard is shooting a lowly 37 percent during the Eastern Conference Finals, yet Boston has a 3-2 lead. The Celtics will look to wrap up the series Friday night in Cleveland.

Celtics' Aron Baynes: Impactful play despite low numbers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baynes contributed six points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), seven rebounds and three blocks in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 96-83 victory over Cleveland.

Baynes was reinserted into the starting lineup for Game Five and was able to have a nice impact on both ends of the floor. He faded late but was crucial to the Celtics gaining the early lead with some strong rebounding and rim protection. It remains to be seen whether he remains in the starting lineup for Game Six but nonetheless, he will need to repeat his strong play if the Celtics are to wrap up the series on Friday.

Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Struggles from the field in Wednesday's victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown had 17 points (4-15 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one block in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 96-83 victory over the Cavaliers.

Brown was dynamic on the offensive end but struggled to find his rhythm but still managed to put up 17 points in the victory. He continues to play well although his shot choices remain questionable at times. He attacked the basket with little reward in this one and perhaps needs to look at facilitating once in the paint rather than forcing his shot. Boston will take the momentum into Cleveland on Friday as they look to wrap up the series in six games.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Magnificent in Game 5 victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum finished with 24 points (7-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocks in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 96-83 victory over the Cavaliers.

Tatum was spectacular on both ends of the floor Wednesday, leading the Celtics to a crucial Game 5 victory. Tatum was unquestionably the best player on the court in this one and while it is hard to call it a breakout game given his strong season, he has certainly established himself as a star of the league. The offense seems to come with some regularity at the moment but it was his defense that shone through as he recorded four steals and two blocks. He will need to bring the same energy on Friday as the Celtics try to wrap up the series in Cleveland which would advance them to the NBA Finals.
