It’s been a case of so far, so good for Kristaps Porzingis with the Celtics.
Porzingis arrived in a three-way trade with the Wizards and Grizzlies, with the idea that his length and outside shooting would be a nice complement to Tatum, Jaylen Brown and now newcomer Jrue Holiday.
“It’s super easy, honestly,” Porzingis said of the transition, via Himmeslbach. “Those guys are so talented. Jayson draws so much attention that it opens things up for me and that’s a perfect scenario for me.
“So I’m looking forward to more of those two-man, three-man actions where it’s really hard to guard, because we don’t even know what we’re going to do. We’re freestyling it and playing off of each other. So it has to be pretty impossible for the other team to understand what’s going to happen.”
Thanks to the new additions, the Celtics are right up there with the Bucks as Eastern Conference frontrunners (on paper). For Boston, it’s nice to see it’s already working out on the court.
