Brian Robb and Rich Levine break down the first live action of the Celtics in over four months down in Orlando from the weekend, including the return of Kemba Walker to the court, Jaylen Brown’s strong start and the battle for rotation minutes off the bench. The guys also go around the Eastern Conference and debate hypothetical first round playoff matchups.
Could Walker be more banged up than we think ahead of Friday’s game with the Bucks? Where do the Celtics see Gordon Hayward as part of their hierarchy? What will Boston’s bench rotation look like given Enes Kanter’s March struggles and the uncertainty at the fourth wing spot?
The pair fill out their report card on how the Celtics look after four months off and what that will change about Brad Stevens’ plans to get the team to the NBA Finals.
