Celtics' bench players settling in
With the newest faces potentially taking on key roles come playoff time, coach Doc Rivers knows he still has a few things to work out before the end of the season.
"I think it helps [the bench] as well," Rivers said Tuesday of having his revised starting five intact. "There's still some moving parts, fortunately or unfortunately for us right now, on our bench but I like our unit."
"I think with the move, you're going to have guys knowing what's expected of them, knowing their definite role and how much time they're going to get," Pierce said. "So that definitely can improve on a lot of consistency, especially in these last few games going into the playoffs."
