Brad Stevens has turned to younger players to fill his starting lineup with Avery Bradley, Jared Sullinger and rookie Kelly Olynyk among the first five in the team's last game against San Antonio. Gerald Wallace, Courtney Lee and Brandon Bass are all veteran players who may be better options today, but the C's are using today to build for tomorrow.
Of course, this same Boston team beat the Miami Heat in Miami, so don't count your W's before they hatch. Any team with NBA talent can beat any other team in this league. The Pacers need all the wins they can grab and a second consecutive road win would be a nice way to tip off back-to-back games with Philly at the Fieldhouse on Saturday.
