How Bradley's Return Impacts Celtics
Coming into tonight, Bradley was averaging 12.4 points, three rebounds and 2.6 assists while shooting 40 percent from the floor.
The Celtics selected Bradley with the No. 19 overall pick in the 2010 draft, but durability has been a concern throughout his career. Although he played in 77 games last season, he never appeared in more than 64 games in a single campaign before that.
He is part of the wing rotation on a team that made the playoffs last season and entered the 2015-16 campaign with similar postseason expectations. He averaged 13.9 points a game in 2014-15 and can stretch the floor with his three-point shooting ability.
However, his best attribute is his perimeter defense. According to NBA.com, Bradley held opponents to 2.4 percent worse shooting from beyond 15 feet than their normal averages last season. He is often asked to shut down one of the opponent’s best ball-handlers or shooters, and his presence on that end of the floor will be welcomed.
