“It was all aggressiveness,” said starting Boston Celtics center Robert Williams III of what drove his excellent play after the first home win of the Celtics’ 2021-22 NBA season, a 104-88 win over the Toronto Raptors the former Texas A&M player described as a revenge game.

Timelord, who finished with 16 points, 13 rebounds, two steals and a block, credited Boston’s aggressiveness with the win. “I felt like us as a team, not just me, did a great job rebounding. We did a great job with physicality. We knew we were lacking that (in the first meeting between the two teams), so we did a great job stepping that up.”

And it was Williams’ aggressiveness in particular that has been instrumental in the Celtics winning three of their last four games after a rough start to the season. Could he be the X-factor the team has been needing?

The hosts of the most recent episode of the CLNS Media “Garden Report” podcast debated this question in their most recent episode, pondering the role Timelord can have in helping the team win games this season if healthy.

Watch the video embedded above to hear their takes on Williams’ potential with the Celtics this season.
