The two best defensive players on the Celtics
Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley, Jeff Green, Kevin Garnett, Jason Collins
This lineup could potentially see a few tweaks. Paul Pierce could play the small forward if Green isn't able to have the defensive impact he should. Also, Fab Melo could play center if he gets acclimated into the system soon enough.
As it is, though, this lineup is absolutely deadly on the defensive end. Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley—though undersized—are two of the best defensive guards in the league and routinely wreak havoc on opposing backcourts.
Then, from small forward to center, this lineup boasts a lot of size with Jeff Green at 6'9", KG at 6'11" and Jason Collins at 7'0". These bigger bodies will be able to protect the rim, that is, if any player can get to the hoop against this lineup.
