The Celtics Are Riding Their Starters Hard

We’re midway through the second quarter, and here are the minute totals for the Boston Celtics’ stars.

- Rajon Rondo: 17
- Kevin Garnett: 14
- Paul Pierce: 14
- Ray Allen: 13

Meanwhile, their bench has played a total of 16 minutes. (It didn’t help that Greg Steimsma picked up four fouls in a minute and a half, of course.)

It’s a risky gamble by Doc Rivers. It’s working now, but fatigue could be a factor later in the game.
