You had to expect this to be intense. You have Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley. two pit bulls out on the court, that both want to keep their starting spots. Then you have Isaiah Thomas who's desperate to steal one of them. Lastly you have the rookie Terry Rozier, who has a similar game to Smart's and saw that Marcus received heavy PT as a rookie and wants to do the same. I expect to see Stevens play a lot of line-ups featuring 3 of these 4 at the same time. Rozier is the only guard not really guaranteed to get a lot of run. AB, Marcus and IT will all get their minutes whether starting or not. Rozier could see stretches where his minutes are scarce. Still a good sign to be continuing to hear praise for the team's #16 pick.
