The Celtics have been said to have “one more run in them” for a few years now. But that may be true this year. Rondo is still firing on all cylinders, but the other three have shown their age at times. So much so that Ray Allen asked to come off the bench.
The NBA had a small tremor last night. Avery Bradley started, which is no longer news. But the player who came off the bench in his stead, Ray Allen, was a sub for only the fifth time in his career — with last night the 1,145th game of the Celtics guard’s career. As it turns out, Allen approached Doc Rivers about making the change.
