Ray, Paul and Rondo - Too Many Minutes For Too Long


Ray and Paul have been averaging 35 or 36 minutes per game - that's way too much over the course of an entire season, especially given their age.  It's possible that their legs are starting to go.  This is a bigger issue for Ray because his shot is especially dependent on the energy in his legs.  The Celtics are giving up too much in their attempt to secure home court advantage.  Even with their injury problems, they need to find a way to give their big guns more rest.  Home court advantage won't mean anything if Paul and Ray are exhausted and unable to hit their jumpers, especially against a team like Chicago.  Plus, as we've seen, running up their minutes isn't necessarily going to assure us home court advantage anyway.  This is a huge issue, yet it hardly gets any attention.  The Celtics also proved last year that they can win on the road!  Begin resting our big guns now!!
