Rondo, Pietrus, and Ray Allen Stay Home, Won't Play In Atlanta

Looks like we'll see more Sasha.

So the Celtics will be without 3 of their main rotation guards again.

Rondo, Pietrus, Allen all stay in Boston -Celtics blog - Boston Globe basketball news

The Celtics traveled to Atlanta this afternoon without three key players -- Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen and Mickael Pietrus -- as they will face the Atlanta Hawks in a game that could determine whether the Celtics open the playoffs at home or on the road. The Hawks are one-half game ahead of the Celtics, who have three games left. The Hawks have four games left. The Orlando Magic are one-half game behind the Celtics, so Boston's playoff opponent could come down to the final game of the regular season.

Here's my plan. Start Bradley, Moore, Daniels, Bass, and Stiemsma. Then bring in Hollins, JaJuan Johnson, Pavlovic, Dooling, and even the new guy Sean Williams off the bench and see what happens. I don't even really care about home court any more right now. In fact, I'm kind of done with this regular season. Bring on the playoffs.
