The Boston Celtics took Saturday off (read: veterans get rest; younger players get work in without an official practice). Jeff Green, who spilled hard to the Garden floor during Friday's win over the Golden State Warriors, sent out this photo via Instragram with the caption: "Slowly changing into my IRONMAN suit... #NormaTec boots and elbow ice wrap... Day of recovery."

The Celtics as a team are in the midst of a recovery stretch that features just one game in seven days. After enjoying three days off leading up to Friday's game, Boston now has three more days off before embarking on a midweek back-to-back in Philadelphia and Indiana.

The Celtics are back on the practice floor Sunday, though coach Doc Rivers will not be with them. Much of the Rivers family is in town and making the trek up to Portland to watch eldest son, Jeremiah, play for the Maine Red Claws as the D-League season winds down.
