Jae Crowder put up 11 points and was able to chip in six rebounds and three assists in Thursday’s loss to the Cavs.
Crowder played as well as you could have asked but the Celtics were outmatched by arguably the best player in the league. He wasn’t amazing throughout the playoffs but he’s been steady and has given the Celtics a reliable wing that can defend and shoot. With talks surrounding the Celtics about acquiring Gordon Hayward and the future concerning their number one pick there is a lot of flexibility for the team, but it might come at the cost of Crowder’s minutes next year. Stay tuned throughout the summer to see how the situation shakes out.
