    Celtics losing because Starters Old,Tired,Doc played them too Much

    The Boston Celtics are losing because doc played the starters too many minutes this year period. Boston is not losing because of no Perk, heck Perk didn't even play the first half of the season and Boston had a great record.


    Ray shot is short ,his legs are gone,the man played almost 40 minutes a game this year at age 35!!!


    Garnett and Pierce played 35-38 minutes a game and their tired.


    Doc refused to play the subs again last night and the starters stunk in the forth quarter again.


    Doc is basically playing 7 guys--- Paul-Rondo-Davis-Green-Allen-West and Krystic 17 minutes.


    The subs are not playing ,so stop blaming the subs for the losing. Doc and the starters deserve all the blame, all of it.


    Take care Run

    I don't think that they are too old or too tired, but it does appear there is a mental letdown of some type.  I expect the concentration to return when the playoffs start or when we play a big name team, the better teams seem to bring out the best in us.  If you noticed a lot of our losses this year can from teams that we did not respect, starting with our first loss to Cleveland.

    Run,
    I defiinitely agree that the starters are playing too many minutes and many on this site have posted similar concerns.  They all need to play less minutes between now and the remainder of the season.   The bench definitely needs to play more minutes.  Hopefully, this will change soon.  The Celtics are losing games anyway and the starters are getting more fatigued with all of these additional minutes they are playing.

    I see run is at it again...just making things up to get some attention...KG is averaging 31.5 min not 35-38, PP is at 34.6 and Ray is averaging 36.0 not 40.
    Maybe the celts problem is too many white/non black players added to the team just like run wanted them to do
