Is Grant Williams key for the Boston Celtics’ East semis vs. the Philadelphia 76ers?

With a lot riding on Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series with the Philadelphia 76ers which started with an embarrassing home loss that put the Boston Celtics down 1-0, Boston answered the bell against the 76ers with a commanding 121-87 effort on Wednesday.

Not only was the game a blowout win for Boston, but Joel Embiid’s return after winning the Most Valuable Player award for 2023 wasn’t as fruitful as Philly would have hoped. On the heels of a monster performance, Sixers star James Harden was nearly non-existent in Game 2, while Boston gave an extended run to reserve forward Grant Williams.

After a really solid performance in their win, the Celtics should seriously consider giving Grant more minutes.
