    It's the logic that bothers me a bit. The Celtics are a playoff team in the East. I would think they would rest him against the Suns so he could play against the Nets.

    Seems like we’ve lost some games against teams on their 2nd leg of b2b’s as well.

    The logic makes sense to me. If a player is nursing an injury and feels good enough to play, you play them while they're ready. If they're not available for the second game then that sucks but at least you had them for a game. There's no telling how Kemba would feel after the first game against us. He might have felt fine for the second game but he didn't. Youre looking ahead at the schedule when teams look toward their next game, not the game after their next.

    I would think teams are looking at the playoffs as well.
