In also contributing 8 points and 3 assists, the German big man continues to be one of the highlights of the season for the Boston Celtics. Labeled as the team’s unsung hero, Daniel Theis is proving the team has the right kind of player in the middle with the style of offense and defense they like to play.
Against a team like the Rockets, Theis is perfect as far as his size goes. He continues to prove he can be a top rebounder despite being under 6-foot-10 and provides enough scoring offensively for opposing big men to have to account for him.
Perhaps both the Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics are setting a new trend that small ball could possibly win championships when you have versatility in the middle like Daniel Theis.
