The Boston Celtics have several options when it comes to the finishing lineup, especially at guard.
Marcus Smart hasn’t had his best season yet, but he has the potential to be a shutdown defender and has a knack for “game winning” plays. On the other hand, he can sometimes be a high-variation player who can create almost as many issues as he solves.
Derrick White is a surprisingly effective rim protector for a guy his size. He is cunning and fills many holes. When injuries forced him into a bigger role he responded with production that earned him Player of the Week honors. He wasn’t a huge factor in the playoffs last year but that may have had something to do with being new to the team at the time.
Malcolm Brogdon is a relentless paint attacker who shoots well from beyond the arc. He’s not well known for his defense but he’s far from a slouch at that end. His 6th man role means he doesn’t start, but that doesn’t stop him from finishing.
Lineup locks generally depend on the availability of the team’s bigs (especially Al Horford and Robert Williams) as well as matchups and hot hands on any given night.
Still, with all that in mind, who would you most like to see on the court at the end of games assuming a reasonably healthy roster?
