With three preseason games under their belt, the Boston Celtics are trying to find a solid rotation that will spur regular season success while conserving their veterans for a long playoff run.
Such a formula is hard to find for even the hardiest of playoff contenders, but the Celtics are no strangers to grinding out a season with veterans who've been written off due to their age.
