Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said on his weekly interview with The Big Show that the team put in a waiver claim on Jeremy Lin when he was cut by Golden State in December. The Rockets had priority on the waiver wire over the Celtics and won the claim, but Ainge said he didn't put in a claim when Houston waived the former Harvard star because the C's roster was set.
"We liked Jeremy Lin some but nobody could have predicted that he would be this good," Ainge said. "I always say it's an opportunity league. Not only did he get an opportunity to play, finally, but an opportunity to play in a system that does what he does best. I'm really happy for the kind. He really is a great kid. It really is a fun story."
As for his own roster, Ainge said that he was encouraged by his team's defense, but acknowledged that, "Our team has been very up and down, very inconsistent."
Bruins forward Rich Peverley has left the team and traveled back to Boston for testing on his right knee.
Peverley injured his knee in the third period of Wednesday's game against the Canadiens when he collided with Habs blueliner Hal Gill. He left the game and did not return. He is not expected to be available for Friday night's game against the Jets, with Josh Hennessy likely to play in his place.
The versatile Peverley had been playing on the team's top line in place of the concussed Nathan Horton.
