Boston Celtics center Kendrick Perkins confirmed that Glen Davis will start in place of suspended Kevin Garnett in Tuesday's Game 2 first-round contest vs. the Heat.
"It is Baby," Perkins said following this Tuesday morning's shootaround in Waltham. "He's been there before. We have got trust in Baby so we know he's going to come out and play hard and do what he has to do."
Davis played well in the 2009 postseason, averaging 15.8 points and 5.6 rebounds. Garnett missed the entire 2009 playoffs with a knee injury.
