#Celtics coach Doc Rivers: Was hoping Jeff Green would earn starting spot. We weren't going to just give it him, but happy he's earned it.— Scott Souza (@scott_souza) April 4, 2013
With Garnett looking at a return to the parquet on Sunday against the Wizards, what will the starting lineup look like? With the rash of injuries that have ravaged the team of late, Doc's been able to experiment with several lineups and over the last five games, he's run with a bigger lineup that included Avery Bradley, Paul Pierce, Jeff Green, Brandon Bass, and Chris Wilcox. Garnett presumably will replace Wilcox when he comes back, but does Green supplant Bass at power forward or will Courtney Lee be benched in favor of Pierce at the two? Green and Pierce have been deadly together and my guess is that Doc will continue to lean on that dynamic duo.
Further lineups open to review, but Rivers likes the Green/Pierce starting combo. On Green: "I think he's earned the right (to start)."— Mark Murphy (@Murf56) April 4, 2013
Looks like it's Lee going to bench. That's gives us a lot of guard fire power in Lee, Jason Terry, and Crawford and makes Wilcox and Randolph the back up bigs.
