Perkins gets 2d technical rescinded, will play in Game 6

The Celtics received a major break after last night’s disastrous Game 5 loss to the Orlando Magic as the league rescinded Kendrick Perkins’ second technical that was called by official Eddie F. Rush. Perkins, who now has six playoff technicals, will be eligible to play in Game 6 tomorrow at TD Garden.

However, the NBA also upgraded Paul Pierce’s foul on J.J. Redick in the fourth quarter was upgraded to a Flagrant 1 after Pierce shoved Redick chasing a loose ball.

The Celtics likely will not have news on the conditions of Glen Davis or Marquis Daniels until tomorrow morning. Both will undergo neurological tests to determine whether they can play after sustaining concussions in Game 5.
