The Case for the Celtics Trading for Jerami Grant

The Boston Celtics are 14-6 since Dec. 31, surging into a virtual tie with the sixth-seeded Toronto Raptors and the Brooklyn Nets, who are seventh in the East. Since New Year’s Eve, the highest plus-minus rating (+10.2) and net rating in the NBA (10.8) belong to Boston.

Through 55 games, the Celtics have the fourth-best defensive rating in the league. They’ve taken their play on that end to an even higher level since Ime Udoka decided to have Al Horford defend opposing centers so Robert Williams could play off the ball, making it easier for him to protect the rim.
