Celtics Bruise Brothers, Semi Ojeleye and Grant Williams, continue to impress

The Celtics Bruise Brothers, Semi Ojeleye and Grant Williams, kept up their fine bench play in the Celtics 119-104 victory last night over the Golden State Warriors. In a combined 56 minutes of play, the Dynamic Duo notched 13 points, nine boards, four assists and four steals. And they tied for plus/minus honors, coming away with team-highs of +14 each. They shot a combined 5-of-10 (50%) from the field.

In November of this season, the two wings averaged only a combined 26.8 minutes per game. That number has soared to 40.2 minutes/game over the last four games, in large part due to injuries to Jayson Tatum and Enes Kanter. But with Tatum back in the lineup last night, the pair was on the floor for 56 minutes - playing their usual brand of tough defense, but also producing on the offensive end. Even if a trade occurs in the next six days, expect that the Bruise Brothers' floor time won't drop back to the November level.
