Game Notes:
The Celtics are playing in their 3rd game in 4 nights.  They are also playing in the first of back to back games with the second in front of the home crowd in Hartford, CT.   Even though the Celtics game notes list the the regular starters for this game, it is doubtful that Doc will play all the veterans in this one and if he does start them, they will play limited minutes. 

Doc still has a very tough decision as to which of the 3 players who are fighting for the 15th roster spot to keep.  He also will be looking to get the younger players playing time to evaluate them along with getting the veterans some rest after playing most of them over 30 minutes in their last game.  On the other side, the Raptors will be looking to avenge their earlier loss to the Celtics.

TP, FL.   Doc will make prudent decisions.  I hope the rooks get lots of playing  time tonight and tomorrow.  The harder the decision is, the better for the Celts.
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift...
   That is why it is called the present.

Anybodys guess when do you think well start seeing a regular rotation, with the starters playing not extended but normal minutes? I recall Doc saying he did want to slowly ramp up the starters minutes, you know that 1st regular season game is around the corner.

Didn't Rondo go 40 on Wednesday?

Let's clip these silly Toronto team. Our bench can win this alone, expect starters to create a solid lead and our bench will do the rest

In years past, Doc moves towards his regular rotation for the last 2-3 games of pre-season.  You won't see it tonight...still looking at combinations, resting certain guys, and evaluating camp invites.

Actually looking at game notes looks like KG will be pushed for regular minutes today.

Celts very sloppy to start this one ... getting out-hustled at the moment on the boards, too.

The Raptors should play Joey Dorsey ahead of Reggie Evans and David Andersen.

Starting Reggie Evans is a mistake. They need to glue him to end of the bench.
