Boston Celtics need Grant Williams and Payton Pritchard to contribute

Two of the most important role players on the Celtics are Grant Williams and Payton Pritchard. They are both good shooters that can bring immediate scoring off the bench for the C’s. That is what their biggest contributions are to the Celtics bench.

The big thing for the Celtics is that at home, role players usually play better. This needs to be the case for Williams and Pritchard on Sunday with the team’s season on the line.

Williams has been the subject of much praise for his defensive contributions this series, specifically against Antetokounmpo. But I can’t lie, we are going to need from him in Game 7, especially on offense.

G-Will had a huge performance in Game 2 with 21 points to help the Celtics pick up a 109-86 victory. But since then, the offense has not been there for him. Grant has a lot to worry about with taking on Giannis on the defensive end of the floor. But, we need to see him contribute more offensively in a winner-take-all type of game.

Pritchard is another guy that needs to step up offensively. There are instances where Pritchard steps up and provides some much needed scoring off the bench, but that hasn’t been the case so far this series.

Pritchard has kept himself in the rotation with some solid defense, but at the end of the day, he’s a shooter. That’s his biggest contribution to this Celtics team. If he can give you 12-15 points off the bench, that would be a huge boost for the Celtics come Sunday.
