Celtics forward Grant Williams after their opening night win.

“Pace is the virtue of this team,” Celtics forward Grant Williams said. “We have a bunch of guys that can bring it, a bunch of guys that are playmakers for one another, and we trust everybody. We trust everybody to make the right decision, to make the right read, to make the right play. So that’s why we keep the ball ahead and we play freely. That encourages players to be who they are and that allows a lot of freedom and opportunity. It makes everybody a threat.”
