The key to the Boston Celtics' success is efficient management of playing time. Talent and skill are nothing without the proper balance of minutes.
Head coach Doc Rivers is faced with the challenge of utilizing all of his weapons while keeping his best players fresh. Veterans Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett are core players, but their legs tire easily compared to their younger counterparts. Rivers must find a way to maximize their ability without overworking them.
During the offseason, general manager Danny Ainge made it a goal to increase the team's depth and versatility. By picking up players like Jason Terry and Courtney Lee, Boston is a better team than last year. Many players can play multiple positions, which makes Rivers' job a little easier.
With the wide variety of talent and ages, how will the Celtics balance their minutes in the 2012-13 season?
