Stats show Daniel Theis has filled in admirably for ex-Celtic Al Horford
Daniel Theis has done a phenomenal job replacing Al Horford, who left the Boston Celtics for the Philadelphia 76ers last summer, in the C's starting lineup
In fact, Theis has been more productive than Horford during the 2019-20 season per 36 minutes. The 6-foot-8 German has averaged about the same number of points as Horford while topping him in multiple categories including rebounds, blocks, and field goal percentage.
Boston also has to be breathing a sigh of relief it didn't sign Horford to a mega-deal, as Theis has been the unsung hero while making $23 million less than the ex-Celtic.
