Hearing Paul pierce may have tonight off for rest

If Dickerson is right, this seems like a well timed and wise decision by Doc. The last time he rested one of his stars the KG-less C's played one of their better offensive games of the season, blowing out the Suns 113-88 in Phoenix in the coming out party for Terrence Williams and Jordan Crawford. Perhaps the same could happen for DJ White or Shavlik Randolph tonight against the Bobcats? A. Sherrod Blakely just sent out this tweet:
#celticstalk: #Celtics Doc Rivers may look to expand the big man rotation by one as early as tonight, w/D.J. White or Shavlik Randolph.

Boston did lose the last time they played in Charlotte however, 94-91, ending the 7 game winning streak that immediately follow Rajon Rondo's torn ACL.
