Boston Celtics rookie Grant Williams has not had the best luck with 3-point shooting this year, but his teammates help him laugh it off.
They've come up with some creative nicknames to poke fun at Williams' struggles. The 21-year-old revealed them to NBC Sports Boston's own Kyle Draper on the latest episode of Celtics Post Up.
"Brad's gotten names for every number I've gone up," Williams said. "So it's gone from 'dub' to 'legal' 'cause I was 0-for-21 so I'm legal now. Hopefully I can knock one in so then I can start a streak of makes where they can say the same."
At least Williams is keeping a positive attitude despite being 0-for-22 from beyond the arc this season.
Since Williams still isn't one to shy away from the 3-point shot, we should get to see him attempt to break the cold streak on Friday night vs. the Denver Nuggets.
Tip-off for the game is set for 8 p.m. ET, but be sure to tune in to NBC Sports Boston at 7 p.m. for Celtics Pregame Live.
