The Celtics are going to feature one of the strongest starting fives in the NBA this season, but Boston’s high-end talent doesn’t stop there.
The C’s also feature tremendous depth, which was put on display last season after both Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving went down with season-ending injuries. Now, with both players healthy, it will be tough to take advantage of the green at any point during a game, even with the starters on the bench.
Marcus Morris is poised to be one of the leaders of Boston’s bench, and he’s even given the unit a nickname based on their grittiness. And after the Celtics’ training session Wednesday, the veteran forward expounded on his expectations for the C’s reserves.
With a second unit that also consists of Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart, Daniel Theis and Aron Baynes, among others, Morris has every right to be confident.
