The Celtics’ lead is evaporating, and they now have even bigger problems on the horizon. First, Rajon Rondo picked up his fourth foul jostling with Norris Cole for post position offensively. Then, Paul Pierce picked up his fourth foul knocking LeBron James on the elbow.
Those two fouls forced Doc Rivers to bring Kevin Garnett back into the game, disrupting KG's normal rest. Garnett can’t play the final 16 minutes straight, and the Celtics fall apart with him out of the game. How will Rivers manage this?
