Celtics big man Robert Williams’ NSFW reaction to wild 9-block night that made NBA history

Robert Williams Celtics Jayson Tatum

Boston Celtics big man Robert Williams just made all kinds of NBA history in Game 1 against the Brooklyn Nets.

But circle back a few hours and he nearly didn’t even play. The Celtics center was questionable for his lingering turf toe issue that’s forced him to miss a good chunk of the regular season.

Brad Stevens gave a positive update on Time Lord moments before the game, per Celtics’ beat reporter Chris Forsberg.

“Robert’s going to come and give it a go. His intent is to play but we’ll see. Very much a game-time decision after warm ups.”

The Celtics were sure glad he played. Robert Williams was just a man among boys, block shots left and right against an undersized Brooklyn Nets team. Peep this insane recovery for his 8th block of the game:

But if you ask Williams himself, he wasn’t too happy given the Celtics squandered their double-digit lead to lost the game in the second half

“No, actually I haven’t gotten this many blocks in a game ever. But it don’t mean shit if we losing, man.”

Nevertheless, the nine blocks he recorded goes down not just in Celtics history, but matches NBA records in the process.

Boston will get a shot at redemption against the Nets in Game 2. Let’s see if Time Lord can one-up himself for that one.
