Gorgui Dieng came off the bench again vs. the Warriors on Thursday, finishing with nine points (3-of-6 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), 10 rebounds, one assist, one block and one triple in 22 minutes.
Taj Gibson started at power forward and it looks like coach Tom Thibodeau is happy with his current lineup. Dieng's minutes are expected to trend down this season, but he'll still get plenty of action because he looks like the backup 4 and 5 -- no other center touched the floor. With a fantasy-friendly game, he's still an option in the middle rounds. Oct 5 - 9:33 AM
