Williams returned to the starting lineup.
The Boston Celtics won 107-99 in a game against the Chicago Bulls in the 2022-2023 NBA regular season held at TD Garden in Boston on the 10th (hereinafter Korean time).
Boston was running for first place in the Eastern Conference. However, on this day, Marcus Smart, who was performing outstandingly on both sides of the offense and defense, was unable to play. Boston’s head coach Joe Mazzula pulled out a hidden card. It was the start of Robert Williams.
Director Majula’s choice was right. Williams showed his presence with 6 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists, running for 22 minutes and 56 seconds that day. He also earned 2 blocked shots and showed off his strong defense.
Williams entered the field to enthusiastic cheers from the home fans. Due to the aftermath of his injury, he can only digest limited playing time, but he did not waste the time given to him.
Williams reported his first point with a spirited alley oop dunk. After that, he took the lead in dirty work and tried to live up to the expectations of his fans. As a result, Williams completed his debut this season with a win.
Thanks to Williams’ performance, Boston won three games in a row and consolidated first place in the Eastern Conference.
Colleagues also praised the returning guardian god. 안전놀이터
Ace Jayson Tatum said in a post-game interview, “It felt like our team was back on track. Marcus Smart wasn’t there, but Robert Williams played great. The rhythm seemed right. He played alley-oops, rim protecting, passing, etc. “I’m very happy that Williams is back.”
Grant Williams said, “Robert Williams is a phenomenal player. He brings something special to our team.
Williams started all 61 games last season and averaged 10.0 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.2 blocked shots, becoming Boston’s main player. However, his chronic knee injury plagued him.
Williams did not give up. He worked hard on his rehabilitation to be a plus to his team. After his return, he continues to show off his presence and leads Boston’s rise.
Now, the task left for him is to improve his condition. If Williams stays healthy and can play more, Boston’s momentum is expected to continue.
