death. taxes. hogan defending Baynes.Baynes would end up taking a lot of threes. As Jay King said on Twitter,I think you consider starting Hayward (or Morris) with this group.
Some interesting tweets (click for threads/more)
Baynes can hit the open 3. He did in the playoffs last season (48%) and he has shot 35% from 3 this season (Hayward 34% this season). Aron won't take many but will keep Milwaukee honest. On offense, Baynes will mostly set physical screens for Ky, Brown, Tatum and Horford - leaving one of those four with an open 3 (Baynes rolling to the rim for the reb/tip out). On defense, the "Lopez sitting on the perimeter narrative" is true when a BIG guards him. If we get cute with Brook and put Hayward on him, Lopez will post for an easy 2 or feed a cutting Giannis for a slam.
Baynes ankle will be better with a week of rest, he'll be more active then he was with Indiana and gum up the middle. Close the games by going "small" (AH/KI/JT/JB/GH) but Brad should start the 1st and 3rd Quarters with Baynes on Lopez.
As far as Jay King's thoughts or the rest of the media, most of them think Marcus Morris Sr was the "most consistent Celtic" this season. I'd be more inclined to listen to Scalabrine's or Tommy's take before anyone else in the media. If they think Gordon will work with the starting 5, I may change my tune.
