The Isaiah Thomas lineup that the Boston Celtics relied on most and how the Denver Nuggets can try to replicate it

And thoughts on where he’ll fit into the rotation

NBA: Toronto Raptors at Denver Nuggets Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

In this episode, I talk about Isaiah Thomas’s skillset, his value on offense, and what he brings to the table. Then I discuss some of my favorite Denver Nuggets lineups that the team should try to preserve even with the addition of Thomas. Lastly, I talk about two lineups that involve Isaiah Thomas that make the most sense to me. The Boston Celtics used Thomas in one five-man lineup 4x more often than any other. I discuss how Denver can produce a similar lineup without removing players like Monte Morris, Torrey Craig, and Malik Beasley from the rotation.
