If anything has dampened the feeling of euphoria that has come from the Celtics' 3-0 start to the season, it's been the play of Boston's bench.
With how dominant the starting five has been, it's been easy to turn a blind eye to just how putrid the second unit has looked during its limited opportunities on the floor.
The Celtics rank last in the NBA in average bench points per contest (15.3), and no reserve has scored more than eight in a game, with Al Horford reaching that mark twice and Sam Hauser doing so once.
Should this pace keep up, Boston is one injury away from really being in trouble depth-wise. Luckily for the Celtics, they do have some potential difference-makers on the current roster, so it's time for head coach Joe Mazzulla to switch up the rotation before it's too late.
Here are three players who could jump-start the second unit:
After shooting 44.4% on 18 attempts from 3-point range during the preseason, Mykhailiuk has been glued to the back half of the bench through the first three games.
Mykhailiuk made his Boston debut against the Washington Wizards on Monday night, getting five minutes of action in garbage time. He attempted a pair of threes, sinking one, while also dishing out an assist and nabbing a steal.
With Hauser shooting just 20 percent from deep and Payton Pritchard doing even worse at 10 percent, the Celtics are in desperate need of a long-range threat off the bench, and Mykhailiuk, a career 36.1-percent shooter from distance, could be the perfect option.
