“I should have played him more”

That’s what Doc said about Stephon Marbury after practice today.

“Steph’s going to be fine. He should have been more aggressive but I should have played him more,” Rivers said after practice on Sunday. “I don’t think I played Steph enough last night to get him going. I thought in the first half the second unit actually had a nice little rhythm going, and in the second half I didn’t play him as much.”

Meanwhile, Ray Allen ended today’s practice with a three pointer… showing that *gasp* he can still shoot!  Rondo had some thoughts about making life easier for Ray and Paul.

“Probably get him shots in transition,” Rondo said of Allen, “that’s how he gets his jump shots. He didn’t get any layups — he missed a dunk — the way our team is built, especially with KG (Kevin Garnett) out, we need to get out on the break a little more, get Ray and Paul easy shots, get them to the free throw line. That way, their jump shots are flowing easier.”

Easy shots will be nice.  But it’s really simple.  Run your offense, make your rotations on D, and you’ll win.  They can’t hang when you do that.

  1. The Herald just reported that KG was seen working out with the Celts trainers at the practice facility today. This story just won’t go away.

  2. Hmmm…I dont know how you play marbury more without playing rondo less, in which case Id rather rondo play 48 minutes…rose was up to 49 and played 8 more minutes then rondo,neither of them can courd rose but at leasst rondo can make the kid work. theres alot of hype surrounding roses performance…dude barely outplayed rondo

  3. What the F’ is Ray smiling about? Come Monday they better get serious or the teenage Bulls will have the last laugh

  4. No, Steph shouldn’t have played more; why play someone 5-10 extra minutes when they’re playing like crap and Rondo is playing brilliantly.

  5. Exactly, Marbury is playing passively. Weak!
