Despite brutal showing against Jazz, Celtics bench has been fine

The Celtics lost a tough one on Friday night, falling to the Jazz 99-94 in a game where the team struggled to get into any sort of a rhythm offensively. Despite going up big early in the first quarter, the Celtics surrendered the cushion in the second period and the Jazz never looked back en route to the victory.

The patchwork starting unit of Kemba Walker, Marcus Smart, Semi Ojeleye, Jayson Tatum, and Daniel Theis did a good job of containing Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, and helped build an early double-figure advantage before Utah’s second unit came storming back.
