Jaylen Brown on Robert Williams: “the sky is the limit”

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via The Timelord comes up big (again) against the Clippers. When talking about Robert Williams, sports clichés abound. He was a key contributor off the bench in the Celtics 117-112 win over the Clippers with 13 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, and three blocks and after the game, his teammates and head coach took notice. Brad Stevens said Williams was “on a great trajectory.” “The sky is the limit,” Jaylen Brown said of Williams’ potential. What the compliments may lack in creativity are made up for in sincerity.

Garden Report: New Rock Bottom for the Celtics

Stephen Lew-USA TODAY Sports Even some of the best play from Robert Williams all season couldn’t stop the Pelicans from blasting by the Celtics’ lackluster offensive and defensive showings in the second half. The Celtics lost 120-115 in overtime on Sunday, their worst day of the week, marking seven days since their previous low against the Wizards. A 24-point collapse against the Pelicans after dominating the first half and getting a chance to save the game in overtime set a new standard.

Photo by Ashley Landis-Pool/ Robert Williams is stuffing the stat sheet as a vastly better rate than most of his teammates. Does he deserve a more significant role on the team? Robert Williams has easily been one of Boston’s five best players this season. He might even be their third best player. Does this mean his relatively limited role is perfect for him, or should he see more playing time? Against the Atlanta Hawks, Javonte Green became the 14th Celtic to start a game this year. This leaves Robert Williams, Tacko Fall, and Aaron Nesmith as the only Celtics to...

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via In a huge win against the Nuggets, Williams gave quality contributions in the absence of Daniel Theis. In Tuesday’s night huge bounce back win for the Celtics, Robert Williams stepped up in a big time role. After Daniel Theis was ruled out with a finger injury, an opening for some added frontcourt minutes became available for Williams, and he was able to do a little bit of everything. Williams finished the game with 8 points, 8 rebounds (3 offensive), and 5 steals in 20 minutes of play, an impressive +12 in +/- rating. This is not...

Boston Celtics big men Tristan Thompson and Robert Williams were introduced to a unicorn Tuesday night. Denver Nuggets do-it-all center Nikola Jokic put together a head-scratching, jaw-dropping performance at TD Garden despite what seemed to be very solid defense from Thompson and Williams.
