Kendrick Perkins is usually the last option on Celtic in-bound plays. But the Celtics changed things up at the end of Monday's practice. Perkins set a screen on the high post. But, instead of passing to a cutting teammate or someone on the perimeter, Perkins took two dribbles and dunked, the last thing second unit opponents expected.

"That was almost a fun section of practice," coach Doc Rivers said. "We were trying to execute plays. Some plays we would never run, obviously. The last play -- maybe we will run, now -- Perk handing it off and dribbling to the basket, it was pretty fun. But it was good, it worked."
