It's a tough spot for Celtics bench guys.
A--Team is very good. Nobody ahead of them is going to give up or need to give up minutes.
B--Team can't score for anything. Nobody on the bench can get minutes to get rhythm.
C--G- League basketball, beyond the ball being round, isn't NBA basketball.
D--The only way for Nader and the bear to finish cooking their geese is for injuries.
E -- This team does not blow out anybody...restricting garbage time. Where's Gino?
F-- Celtics are already very young.
I will offer that a pattern emerges with Ainge. Give these guys a year in G league and give them a shot at the end of the bench. Lord, Young was here for a decade and got like 48 seconds a game. Ainge knew this wasn't a title year, thus, we have young guys who never play instead of veteran big and wingers for the playoff push.
Bird and Allen have had solid stints in Maine and the NCAA, but, a lot will have to happen next year for Stevens to give them seconds let alone minutes.
