How does Derrick White impact winning for the Celtics?

Derrick White has been a major part of the Boston Celtics roster this season. The versatile guard has proven himself to be one of the best two-way players in the NBA, as he blends his exceptional defense with reliable playmaking and secondary scoring. White has formed a robust partnership with Jrue Holiday in Boston’s backcourt.

With his steady style of play, and selfless brand of basketball, White has rapidly become a fan favorite with the Celtics fanbase. He was even discussed as a candidate to potentially gatecrash this year’s All-Star selections. 

During a recent episode of “Celtics Post Up,” NBC Sports Boston’s Chris Forsberg discussed how White has been making an impact for the Celtics this season. He touched on his defense, shot-making, passing ability and how he consistently gets himself into position to block shots.
