Frank Dell'Apa reports Kendrick Perkins was back at practice today. In a related story, Doc Rivers just delivered the quote of the year so far:
"I thought he gave and lot of good hits. I don't know if they were intentional but two or three people went down and Perk was standing near them, so I just assumed he's the culprit."
How awesome is that? Said Perk:
"I felt the contact and it was cool," Perkins said. "I just need to pace it and keep building it from here, keep doing the extra stuff, the conditioning. It's been real frustrating but I'm happy to feel a part of it and be part of the rotation right now.
"I delivered a few hits, a few fouls. I was just trying to set some screens and get back into it, just trying to be physical and see where I'm at. Now, I just have to make sure to stay on top of it, and take care of myself."
Looks like he's on target to play Thursday Tuesday night.
