Paul Pierce (rest) will sit out tonight in Charlotte. Jeff Green will start in his place. The Celtics host Toronto tomorrow.— Sean Grande (@SeanGrandePBP) March 12, 2013
It's official. The Captain gets the day off and Jeff Green slides into the starting lineup. Green filled in for Garnett when KG sat against Phoenix and put up a monster line vs. the Suns. With Green playing more minutes at SF tonight, look for Shavlik Randolph and D.J. White to soak up back-up big duties. White played briefly against the Pacers, but looked good in four minutes with 2 rebounds and 2 blocked shots. It would be great to see him play valuable minutes against his last NBA team before spending most of this season in China.
