Celtics coach Ime Udoka references SGA block as to why Grant Williams doesn’t get plays called for him
When asked about why he doesn’t run more plays for Grant Williams, Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka referenced a play earlier this season when his team faced the Oklahoma City Thunder. The play involved Williams being fed the ball in the post and get his shot blocked by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander as an example of why he doesn’t get more plays called for him compared to Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.
“I called one play for him this year against OKC when SGA was on him, and he got a post up and Gilgeous blocked him at the rim, and that was pretty much his one attempt,” Udoka told NBC Sports Boston.
The game he’s referring to happened on March 21, as the Celtics defeated the Thunder, 132-123. Williams finished that game with 20 points and 10 rebounds.
