Thon Maker made another big impact on Sunday, scoring eight points with two rebounds, two 3-pointers and five blocks in 31 minutes of action.
Maker has thrived with John Henson out and has suddenly emerged as a major player in this series. Tyler Zeller started but was fairly ineffective despite four points, for boards and two blocks in 11 minutes, and we wouldn't be shocked to see Maker eventually overtake him in the starting five. The Celtics have dared him to shoot and so far he's made them pay, but we'd expect some regression on that front as the series wears on. As long as Maker continues to be a menace at the rim, he'll have a place in the rotation.
