NBA Playoffs – Boston Celtics celebrate three rain of Grant Williams in game 7: We now call him Grant Curry

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown no longer got out of the raving about teammate Grant Williams after victory in game 7 against the Milwaukee Bucks. The 23-year-old hired a three-way record for a game 7.

“We call him Grant Curry,” cheered Brown after the 109: 81 victory against the Bucks, who secured the Celtics the ticket for the Eastern Conference Finals. With 27 points, Williams became the top scorer of the home side and sank 7 three attempts.

In front of this series against Milwaukee, Williams had never taken more than 8 threesome in one game and never turned more than 6. In addition, he had never cited his team as the best point collector. All of this changed on the big stage of game 7.

“Grant won a playoff game for us. A game 7,” emphasized Tatum, who jokingly added: “I told him not to get used to so many throws.” At the same time, he emphasized that the Celtics urgently needed this fireworks of Williams.

“I would have called you a liar,” said Brown when asked if he had believed the reporter before the game if he had told him about 18 trials by Williams. Brown also had an explanation for this. “They offered us. They sent an additional defender to stop me or Jayson. So we just had to fit, he was wide open. We trust all of our boys, Grant is a good shooter and he was on the spot.”

Boston Celtics: Grant Williams punishes the Bucks Defense

Boston set up a new franchise record for the playoffs with 22 threes, Williams meanwhile set the record for most threesome in a game 7. Seven successful triples previously only Stephen Curry (twice) and Marcus Morris.

After Williams continued a few open throws at the beginning of the game, he then listened to the announcements of the teammates. “About 15 people came to me and said: ‘Wide keep throw it!’ [The Bucks] encouraged me to do this, so I thought I can also draw an advantage from it, “said the forward.

Milwaukee had just 4 successful distances to the 22 threes of the Celts, according to ESPN Stats & Info it was the greatest discrepancy in a game 7 ever. But even in the two -point area and even with Giannis Antetocounmpo (25 points, 10/26 FG), not everything went according to plan.

“Logs that I normally meet did not go in. This is basketball, that’s sport,” said the Greek. “Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. You have to live with it. I’m a competitor. It hurts not to win, but at the end of the day I have to wish Tatum and his team all the best for the way.”

While the (still) reigning champion has to leave the playoff stage, the Boston Celtics now meet Miami Heat in the East Finals. The series starts in Boston on Wednesday (from 2.30 a.m. on DAZN )
