Semi Ojeleye will start Thursday night for Game 6 in Milwaukee.
Known for his scoring in college – 19 points per game on a 62.1 true shooting percentage in his final season – Ojeleye has provided his value mainly on the defensive side of the ball. Showing his ability to guard multiple positions has garnered praise from coach Brad Stevens and other teammates. Marcus Smart even called him an ox, which we assume is a good thing. Ojeleye is inconsistent on offense but as long as the Celtics need help defensively he will be playing – especially if they advance to face the Sixers in the second round.
