On Friday night, Sam Hauser had a commanding performance during his extended playing time for Boston, contributing 26 points in the Celtics’ 121-102 win over the Toronto Raptors.
Hauser made the crowds go wild during the game when he tossed down three dunks, and after the game, Hauser admitted he hadn’t dunked so many times in a game since high school.
“Anytime you can get more game experience, I think that’s a positive. When we have a full roster, I don’t know if I’ll play or not,” Hauser said, via Boston.com. “But, I’m always ready and I know I’m going to be locked in on the timeouts and in huddles and make sure I know what’s going on so if my number is called, I’m ready to go. Obviously, the playoffs is a big step up from the regular season in terms of attention to detail and intensity. Just got to be ready for it.”
