Paul Pierce might rest tonight

Got to hand it to Doc… he’s taking advantage of the schedule to rest guys at times that minimize the impact on the team.

If Pierce sits, Jeff Green will start.  I’m also going to bet this means KG sits tomorrow night.  He’s due for another day off.

    This is exactly what I was looking for from Doc. Start resting HoFs and give more PT for others to get in the groove and build confidence and chemistry. Ws will follow or not, as long as we stay at the 6th…
    Green and bench need to use this opportunity! BB has a chance to put his money where his mouth was on consistency… Go Cs!

    YES! I was toying with this idea to give PP or KG some rest and start JG again. JG starting against the Bobcats is the perfect way to get him back into his rhythm. It also rests PP and gives us a chance to use our suddenly deep bench and see how these guys are.

    My guess is KG rests tomorrow night or Friday as well.

    Well obviously guys… I’d say about 95% of Celtics Nation expected PP / KG to get rest one game each this week.

      I saw it coming more for KG than PP.

        i just figured with the pinched nerve in his neck he’d def get a night off. What i’m more interested to see is if JET gets a rest as well.

          I’m hoping jet plays, just so he gets a few shots especially with PP resting,but in saying that this would be a good opportunity for t-will and JC to log some minutes and hopefully a dj white sighting would be nice
