Jared Weiss: @JaredWeissNBA:
Rob Williams is listed as questionable with left knee soreness, as always in the Finals. – 4:58 PM:

Robert Williams is once listed as questionable for Game 6 of the NBA Finals. – 4:54 PM:

Jay King: @ByJayKing:
Robert Williams on the mood of the Celtics before Game 6: “Purposeful. Just knowing the areas we want to clean up in. Knowing the stuff we want to look at. Just staying together is the biggest thing. Not separating from each other. ” – 2:20 PM:

Brian Robb: @BrianTRobb:
Rob Williams is shooting 88 percent in the NBA Finals but only has taken 18 shot attempts. The Celtics really need to start looking for him more on plays like this in Game 5, especially with the Warriors playing small so much. pic.twitter.com/aMkRPLcL65:5:01 PM:

Brian Robb: @BrianTRobb:
Celtics need to be better with their reads against Warriors defense. Sometimes the easy play is right in front of them as is case here with wide open Rob Williams under basket. Al Horford drove into traffic instead before kicking ball out again. pic.twitter.com/NLhVvW7ltX:1:28 PM:

Law Murray: @LawMurrayTheNU:
Through 5 games in 2022 NBA Finals:
– Celtics outscoring Warriors by 31 points in 126 minutes with Robert Williams III on the floor (team-best for Celtics)
– Warriors outscoring Celtics by 42 points in 114 minutes with Robert Williams III off the floor (team-worst for Celtics) – 12:33 AM:

Jay King: @ByJayKing:
Robert Williams said the two days between games has helped him a lot. Said he’s feeling good out there. – 11:56 PM:

Brian Geltzeiler: @BGeltzNBA:
Strange substitution decision by Udoka. You play right into Kerr’s hands with Draymond out by matching up small with Robert Williams and Horford on the bench – 11:29 PM:

Jeff Eisenband: @JeffEisenband:
Celtics are the most “I wish that guy was on my team” team.
Marcus Smart, Robert Williams III, Grant Williams, you wish all these guys were on your team. – 10:53 PM:

Nate Duncan: @NateDuncanNBA:
Rob Williams has played the entire 3rd quarter. Usually they’d take him out first and go with Horford at C, but took out Al instead – 10:51 PM:

John Hollinger: @johnhollinger:
A rare own goal for Robert Williams. – 10:46 PM:

Michael Pina: @MichaelVPina:
rob williams is +15 and nobody else in the game is better than +6 – 10:44 PM:

Tony Mejia: @MejiaDinero:
Two halves to a game but the Celtics are embarrassing tonight- outside of Robert Williams- everyone shrinking. 2Q +.5 a loser. Boston playing like a bunch of losers. – 10:13 PM:

Nate Duncan: @NateDuncanNBA:
Horford -20, Rob Williams even. But I just do not think Rob can play more minutes. Had 12 in first half, maybe they can ramp that up a little in the 2nd. – 10:11 PM:

Andrew Sharp: @andrewsharp:
The Finals is Andrew Wiggins vs. Rob Williams, just like everyone expected. – 10:04 PM:

Nate Duncan: @NateDuncanNBA:
If Udoka thinks Rob Williams can play more minutes, he should be out there. Warriors just get too much at the rim unless he’s out there, even if the spacing is better with Horford. – 10:03 PM:

James Boyd: @RomeovilleKid:
Lol I know Jayson Tatum ain’t have the nerve to pout after that awful pass. That’s on YOU not Robert Williams! 😂 – 9:45 PM:

Dalton Johnson: @DaltonJ_Johnson:
We talk about Robert Williams’ health a lot and understandably so. His toughness is unquestioned. I do not know how he’s doing this on that hurt knee – 9:45 PM:

CJ Holmes: @CjHolmes22:
Man if Draymond would’ve thrown down that dunk over Robert Williams III… – 9:44 PM:

Mark Medina: @MarkG_Medina:
Robert Williams down on the ground for a bit after trying to contest Draymond Green’s fast-break dunk. Williams eventually helped up, and he’s still trying to gut it out. – 9:44 PM:

Mike Prada: @MikePradaNBA:
Tatum looked awful on that wild shot, but part of the problem is that Robert Williams did not make himself available for a roll or slip pass. That, plus the Warriors’ low man is sinking in off the corner very early. – 9:43 PM:

Tas Melas: @TasMelas:
Robert Williams impact– Steph uncharacteristically just throws his body at him in hopes of a foul. Nice no-call, stripes! – 9:39 PM:

Connor Letourneau: @Con_Chron:
END OF Q1: Warriors up 27-16 on the Celtics. Golden State has looked good, sure, but Boston also just has been totally out of rhythm. It does not help that Robert Williams III does not look right. He’s so important to what they do. – 9:39 PM:

A. Sherrod Blakely: @ASherrodblakely:
Robert Williams foul with 0.2 on the game clock, and Ime Udoka’s tech… horrible way for the quarter to end for the #Celtics: who finally showed signs of life near the end of the first. Steph missed the tech, Wiggins made second of two FTs, lead 27-16 after 1Q. – 9:37 PM:

Mike Prada: @MikePradaNBA:
. @Jared Weiss: noted Robert Williams’ tendency to keep his hands down off ball. theathletic.com/3361968/2022/0…
Cost him there. – 9:35 PM:

Jay King: @ByJayKing:
Just a rough mishap there for Robert Williams. Likely sends Andrew Wiggins to the line at the end of the quarter (they’re reviewing now). Now Ime Udoka has picked up a technical foul. Unclear whether the Celtics ‘pets’ heads are also falling off. – 9:34 PM:

Jared Weiss: @JaredWeissNBA:
Tatum scores on a drive middle, pull-up and a cut on his first three possessions back in the game to give the Celtics some points. Celtics close out the quarter on an 8-2 run before a Rob Williams foul at the buzzer turns into a tech for Udoka on top of the 2 free throws. – 9:34 PM:

Jay King: @ByJayKing:
Tatum with three straight buckets against this small Warriors group, then Robert Williams gets a putback layup. Warriors really missing Looney here at the end of the first. – 9:32 PM:

Jared Weiss: @JaredWeissNBA:
Rob Williams made huge strides this year defending with his feet and not fouling, but he needs to learn next year how to use his hands. When to get a hand up to contest, how to push on hips without fouling, blocking shots to teammates to spark transition, all the little things. – 9:31 PM:

Jay King: @ByJayKing:
The Warriors are extremely small here with Kevon Looney in foul trouble. Andre Iguodala at center, Gary Payton guarding Robert Williams, Steph and Poole both in the backcourt. – 9:30 PM:

Marcus Thompson: @ThompsonScribe:
GP2 is on Robert Williams after waiving off Iguodala – 9:30 PM:

Matt Steinmetz: @SteinmetzNBA:
Did I just see Celtics try to bring ball up with Robert Williams and Al Horford handling? – 9:16 PM:

Anthony Slater: @anthonyVslater:
That’s already as many points as Draymond Green scored in the two Boston games. Snuck a lefty layup past Robert Williams and then fooled him with the fake DHO and attack for a dunk. Williams seems a step slower early. – 9:15 PM:

If I’m a Celtics fan, I’m very worried about Rob Williams’ knee. The broadcast missed it, but he pointed to Udoka and asked out of the game after this sequence.
Watch him in the two possessions after the play. He was dragging that leg. pic.twitter.com/tN5P4zUn8W:5:16 PM:

Dalton Johnson: Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green are still sitting together on the team plan. Warriors GM Bob Myers walked past them on the way to Game 6 and reminded them how special their bond is to be doing this for the past 10 years. Pretty historic trio -via: Twitter @DaltonJ_Johnson: / June 15, 2022:
