For now, pretend JC is still a Celtic. With the trade in limbo, he still could be. Sixth seeded Jae Crowder will go up against the Celtics’ newest bruiser in 11th seeded Aron Baynes. Crowder will certainly have his hands full dealing with the 6-10, 260 pound center, but Baynes will have to keep up with Crowder on the perimeter as well.

Can Crowder knock Baynes off of his list of 99 problems or will the big man start a trend of size being a big advantage in this Green-on-Green tournament?
