Well, not completely, but in one key area: baseline cuts. One of the major things Avery Bradley did to the Heat in the regular season was occupy defenders with hard backdoor dives to the rim. Even if he didn’t get the ball, he made himself a threat, so the Heat had to attend to him.
The Celtics had been missing that element since Bradley got hurt. In Friday’s Game 3 against the Heat, they’ve gotten it back with Daniels. He’s slid along the baseline for two layups cutting backdoor, and one other time, his cut prevented Dwyane Wade from double-teaming Ray Allen near the hoop.
Count on the Heat adjusting here, but it’s still a welcome sight.
