2. The Celtics Really Do Have Frontcourt Depth

If anything is going to hold this team back, it's going to be the situation down low.

Porzingis has already missed nine games and certainly doesn't have the most glamorous track record when it comes to staying healthy, and Horford is now 37 years old. Anything happens to that duo, and it's Neemias Queta and Luke Kornet taking over in the frontcourt.

Queta shined out on the West Coast, recording double-doubles against the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers. But it was Kornet who stole the spotlight at home.

After not playing against Detroit, Kornet drew the start against Toronto and was fantastic. He made 9 of 11 shots from the floor to finish with 20 points, adding eight boards, three assists and three blocks to his ledger.

Kornet has been good when called upon, but it is still hard to imagine him and Queta being the guys to take some of the load off Porzingis and Horford in the post come playoff time.

Don't get used to Queta racking up double-doubles, or Kornet flirting with them, but maybe things down low aren't as bad as we thought.
