Joe Mazzulla needs to keep trusting Sam Hauser off the bench for the Boston Celtics

Reserve forward Sam Hauser has been playing well consistently for the Boston Celtics so far this season, making the Virginia alum a valuable asset off the bench for the ball club in a season that has not seen enough bench contributing off the pine for Boston.

The rest of the bench players have been inconsistent in the Celtics’ 2023-24 campaign to date, which raises concerns about the team’s depth come playoff time. With injuries and rest days inevitable, it is crucial for the Celtics to assess the capabilities of their bench players with some real run alongside Hauser to determine if the team’s front office needs to make any changes before the NBA’s 2024 trade deadline rolls around in mid-February.

The hosts of the CLNS Media “Still Poddable” podcast recently weighed in on this dynamic on a recent episode.
