Otto Porter starts and plays 4.5 minutes. -6. – 9:16 PM

CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Warriors are getting outrebounded 7-2 to start, and here comes Kevon Looney for Otto Porter Jr. with 7:23 left in the first quarter. – 9:15 PM

Peter Vecsey @PeterVecsey1
Otto Porter in the starting lineup gives the Celtics five guys they’ve got to guard versus four with Looney. Baloney gives the Warriors everything Draymond Green thinks he gives them… – 9:10 PM

Mark Murphy @Murf56
Interesting shift, with Otto Porter Jr. starting in place of Kevon Looney. – 9:05 PM

Warriors starting Otto Porter over Kevon Looney in Game 4 of NBA Finals nba.nbcsports.com/2022/06/10/war…9:00 PM

Tas Melas @TasMelas
In Game 4 of the 2015 Finals, down 2-1, the Warriors sat Andrew Bogut and went to their “Death Lineup” with Draymond Green at center. That lineup with Iggy had a lot more experience than tonight’s with Porter Jr. – 9:00 PM

Dalton Johnson @DaltonJ_Johnson
Through the first 3 games of the NBA Finals, Otto Porter Jr. is 7-for-9 from the field. All of his attempts have been 3-pointers
Playing him with Draymond makes a lot of sense – 8:58 PM

Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
The lineup shakeup shows some urgency here for Golden State. Otto Porter in for Looney, another scoring threat and you’re conceding to Boston’s size – 8:58 PM

Otto Porter Jr. being fully available tonight is also big.
