Celtics should have used the bench more during the regular season (this bench and the one before the trades). This would have given the bench an opportunity to reach its potential and it would have given the starters more rest, especially players like Ray Allen who need fresh legs for their jump shot. Even someone young like Rondo needs some rest! Using the bench properly is win win all the way. Even with injuries, you should use the bench as much as possible. Even if you lose a couple of games as a result, it’s still worth it in the long run because it means your starters will be fresher late in the season and especially in the playoffs. Plus, how else will you know what someone like Bradley is really capable of doing?
