The Boston Celtics looked a little different when they took on the Denver Nuggets on Friday night.

Boston had a busy trade deadline, acquiring guard Derrick White and center Daniel Theis, while dealing away several others. White didn’t wait around and made his debut for the squad in Friday’s 108-100 win against Denver, stealing the show.

White did a little bit of everything for the Celtics and finished the night with 15 points, six rebounds and two assists on 3-of-7 from three-point range. The newly acquired guard also arguably made the most-important play of the game with a key three-point play with two minutes remaining in the contest.

While it’s just one game, if White consistently can provide this level of play, the Celtics will be in good shape.
