With the playoffs approaching, coaches are now beginning to devise the rotations they want to see in those postseason games. While they may not exactly shorten their rotations yet, they are certainly evaluating their players to see which lineups will be the most efficient in the biggest contests of the year.
The Boston Celtics' roster has changed dramatically throughout the season. Guys have gotten injured, other guys have been acquired through trades and others have been signed via free agency in the middle of the campaign. Due to all of the inconsistencies with this group over the course of the year, Doc Rivers has never really been able to get a firm grasp on what his best lineups really are.
Now, with the postseason about a month away, Rivers needs to start making some decisions. Who will be getting minutes? Who will get the short end of the stick? What roles will each of his reserves play?
It should be a fun final stretch.
