Shane Larkin stepped up for the Celtics on Wednesday night with 11 points, three rebounds, two assists, two turnovers and three 3-pointers in their 102-91 win over the Hornets.
Larkin, much like Rozier, benefited from the Celtics’ rotation being chopped down with Jaylen Brown‘s injury. Larkin saw 24 minutes of action on Wednesday night, a season high. He came in and drilled three 3s and complimented Kyrie Irving very nicely in the backcourt. The Celtics are one of the deepest teams in the league so when they’re back at full strength, it’s unlikely Larkin will see more than 20 minutes in a game. Until then though, Larkin warrants attention in deeper leagues.
