In Game 4, the Celtics beat the Mavericks in a way that made NBA history

The OKC Thunder found the piece they were missing.

That meant Chet Holmgren missed his whole rookie year, but as soon as he came back, he made a big difference.

The Chet Holmgren vs. Victor Wembanyama debate got a lot of attention, and Wembanyama’s famous rookie season kind of overshadowed what Holmgren did all year.

But now that he’s the only one of the two great players left in the playoffs, it’s his turn to shine.
And shine he does.

NBA History on Twitter shows that he is now only the fourth rookie to score 120 points or more, grab 60 rebounds, or block 20 shots in their first eight playoff games. The other three were David Robinson, Alonzo Mourning, and Tim Duncan.

We don’t need to compare them; we can and should enjoy both of them. However, Holmgren would have been the Rookie of the Year every year except this one.

Also, he could have scored more if he wasn’t the third scoring choice for his team, after Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jalen Williams. He helped them win the basketball game and get the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference.

The Thunder are the NBA’s youngest No. 1 seed ever. This team will be very good for many years to come.

They still have a lot of draft picks to keep adding young talent or trade for win-now pieces. If Holmgren keeps up this level of play, it shouldn’t be long before he’s on All-Star, All-Defensive, and maybe even All-NBA teams.
