Doc Rivers decides to limit the Celtics' rotation to 9 players
With all the excitement over Rondo's stellar game and Pierce's clutch 3 point shot, it seems to have gone unnoticed that Doc announced in yesterday's post-game presser that he is limiting the rotation to 9 players. He begins to talk about it in the video above around 2:05.
There is no mention of Jermaine O'Neal and how he figures into the equation if he decides to come back. Or if the 9 man rotation might change if the Celtics add/change another piece before the March 15th trade deadline. I for one am a little disappointed that he doesn't plan on using the rookies more, but hopefully we might get to see them play in blow-out victories.
