Grant Williams finally has a breakout game in Celtics 114-93 win over Pistons

We knew Grant Williams' 25 consecutive 3-point misses were a fluke, and we knew that a breakout game was in the offing. Well, it happened last night as the Boston Celtics defeated the Detroit Pistons 114-93.



Williams logged a team-high 29 minutes (tied with Kemba Walker and Jaylen Brown) - notched 18 points on 8-of-10 from the field and 2-of-3 from beyond the arc, while adding three rebounds and a block. His points came on a combo of 3-pointers, mid-range jumpers, layups and put-backs. Grant has looked comfortable on the hardwood since he first stepped onto the parquet, but his production has been sparse. Not so last night.

Marcus Smart has even gone as far as referring to G-Will as his "Mini-Me". Grant was taken by Boston with the 22nd-overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft, and he is logging 15.1 MPG, the most among the Celtics rookies. But at 6'6" and 240 pounds, the question is, where does he play on the court. Power forward? Small forward? Small-ball center? My guess is that we will see him at all three positions as the season progresses. Last night, G-Will showed what he is capable of. Expect to see more of it. Also expect his 3-point accuracy to start climbing after his 0-for-25 start. He is now at 4-of-32 for .125 3-ball accuracy. He is starting to find his mark.
