Celtics-Wizards preview: Quick turnaround for Celtics

http://www.csnne.com/boston-celtics/celtics-wizards-preview-quick-turnaround-celtics


BOSTON — With six games in the next 10 days beginning with tonight's game at Washington, getting some downtime whenever possible is a must for the Boston Celtics.

So for all that went right for Boston in its 117-103 win over Phoenix, getting the starters off the floor earlier than usual bodes well for the Celtics going forward.

Boston (21-19) has played well on the second night of a back-to-back set of games, and will be tested again when they travel to Washington and face the Wizards on Saturday night.

Washington (19-19) comes into tonight's game having won four in a row, and are starting to look and play like the team many thought would be among the Eastern Conference's top teams.

So if there was a time for Boston to get a little extra rest heading into the second night of a back-to-back set of games, this is it.

The only starter for Boston who played major minutes was Avery Bradley, but that was in part because he is still working out the kinks from a left hip injury that sidelined him for three games.

Bradley, in 38-plus minutes on Friday, had 17 points which included him making his first 3-point attempt on Friday which snapped a string of 18 straight 3-point misses.

Indeed, it was unusual for the Celtics to have most of their starters watching the fourth quarter from the bench.

“You don’t go into the game thinking about tomorrow night,” said Celtics head coach Brad Stevens. “You’re just trying to do your best in that game.”

But as Friday’s game played out, Stevens was given the luxury of keeping most of his starters like Isaiah Thomas on the bench for longer than usual stretches due to the team’s excellent ball movement, solid play from the bench and strong play defensively against the Suns’ shooters who collectively rank among the NBA’s best clubs in 3-point shooting.

Phoenix (13-28) wound up shooting 37 percent on 3s which is about what they average, but a number of their made 3s came when the game was out of reach and the Celtics were playing their reserves for longer periods of time than usual.

“Isaiah played the first (quarter) and third and didn’t play at all in the second or the fourth,” Stevens said.

That’s because in the second quarter, Stevens was about to substitute him back in the game but Kelly Olynyk began absolutely destroying the Suns’ defense and Stevens wisely didn’t want to disrupt the flow of the unit on the floor.

Olynyk wound up leading all Celtics with 21 points off the bench, 15 of which came in the second quarter.

And with the game firmly in hand, Stevens opted to not play Thomas at all in the fourth.

He wasn’t the only who saw a noticeable drop in minutes played.

Amir Johnson, who scored the game’s first five points, played just under 19 minutes and finished with 13 points and five rebounds.

“So for him (Thomas) to end up with twenty-four minutes and Amir to play less than twenty was probably a good thing,” Stevens said.

The Celtics will find out soon enough tonight against a Washington team that's playing some of the best basketball in the NBA.

Not bad, Sully attacking in the low post. However he was slow going down to the defensive end and gave up a bunny. IT with the hot hand. However he has lost the ball driving into a double team and played too much me ball on the last possession.

and Zeller mistimes his jump again and doesn't get the board on the Kelly miss.

That's what happens when you never play.
