Payton Pritchard shows Celtics he’s ready for moment in Game 7 win over Bucks

BOSTON — In the opening moments of Game 7, the Bucks made one thing clear: They were going to dare anyone outside of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to beat them. Mike Budenholtzer doubled down on his defense-first, protect the paint mentality that had led the Bucks to a road win in Game 1, leaning heavily on the frontcourt of Brook Lopez and Giannis Antetokounmpo in drop coverage, protecting the rim at all costs.

Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Plays key role in fourth quarter

Pritchard finished with 10 points (5-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes during Wednesday's 114-107 victory over the Nets. Pritchard played only 16 minutes during the win, but he garnered a vital role down the stretch and hit some big shots to help Boston grow its lead late in the fourth quarter. The backup point guard played only eight minutes during Game 1, but after a strong showing Wednesday, it seems likely he'd get another shot to replicate his performance in Game 3.

Payton Pritchard is the Celtics’ Gentleman in the 4th

Payton Pritchard got frustrated more than once this season. Wearing a face mask in the fall after a broken nose, struggling to shoot in spot minutes and quickly gone from Ime Udoka’s short rotation, he became invisible on a team he shined on early and often on as a rookie. He racked up six DNP-CDs and averaged 9.3 minutes per game during the first 29 games of this season, stuck behind Marcus Smart and Dennis Schröder in the point guard hierarchy.

Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Impressive game off bench Sunday

Pritchard accumulated 17 points (6-6 FG, 5-5 3Pt), two rebounds, three assists and one steal over 19 minutes during Sunday's 124-104 win over Denver. Pritchard recorded his third straight game with double-digit points, making it the first time this season he's reached that streak. However, he continues to play off the bench and his role varies on a game-to-game basis, so it's hard to trust him regularly outside of single-day slates or very deep formats.

Payton Pritchard earning Ime Udoka’s trust off Celtics bench with improved 3-point shooting in growing role

For the second straight game on the Celtics’ west coast trip, Payton Pritchard helped the visitors put the game away early in the fourth quarter. The second-year guard buried a pair of 3s at the beginning of the final period against Sacramento on Friday night, burying a Kings squad that showed signs of life in the third quarter on the way to a 126-97 win for Boston.

Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Drops 14 and eight off bench

Pritchard had 14 points (5-5 FG, 4-4 3Pt), five rebounds, eight assists and one steal over 21 minutes during Friday's 126-97 win over the Kings. Pritchard took advantage of a blowout situation to see increased minutes in the second half, resulting in his second consecutive double-digit scoring effort. The second-year guard hasn't been fantasy-relevant, for the most part, this season, but he remains a key cog in coach Ime Udoka's nightly rotation.
