Big 3, Perk all sitting for the Celts

With one game left in the regular season, and their No. 4 seed secure, Doc Rivers elected to sit Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, as well as Kendrick Perkins. The decision to sit Perkins is a strategic one as he has 15 technical fouls. If he received his 16th he would be subject to a one-game suspension and Rivers said the team couldn't get clarification from the league one whether the suspension would take place in the first game of the playoffs, or the first game next season.
