Kevin Garnett said he and some of the others have been lobbying Rivers to tweak the lineups and get Daniels involved with the starters more.
“I don’t even think ya’ll have seen the best of Marquis,” Garnett said. “He’s been banged up with his hand, but he’s coming back.”
Obviously, the Celtics starting five is pretty much cemented, but Rivers said he liked what he saw when Marquis was on the floor, and that having another big small forward helps when the Celtics are in right spots because of injuries.
“Just think what last year – we’d have been in trouble,” Rivers said. “We didn’t have a back-up three for most of the year. But it was great. Great cuts, great movement, great defense on his part even though I didn’t think this was a great defensive game by us. But we still win the game.”
