Last Monday, Doc had this to say about keeping the Big 3 fresh:
“Even if I play a Billy (Walker) and a Gabe (Pruitt) and we’re struggling with them in, I’ve got to sit and take it because I can’t burn Paul and Ray out. That’s going to be a tough one.”
Apparently Doc can’t “sit and take it.” Paul Pierce played nearly the entire game (47 minutes, 42 seconds) against the Pistons. Bill Walker and J.R. Giddens played 38 seconds – combined.
This reckless coaching behavior will come back to bite us in the ass in the playoffs. I guarantee it.
