On the schedule: rest, holiday cheer
By Chris Forsberg
Mark L. Baer/USA TODAY SportsCeltics coach Doc Rivers is giving his troops some rest after a home-and-home with Philadelphia.
Coming off a home-and-home grind against the rival Philadelphia 76ers, the Boston Celtics will take the next two days off before returning to the practice court on Tuesday.
With a three-day break in the schedule, Celtics coach Doc Rivers is sticking with a desire to maximize rest. While Boston players undoubtedly will be at the team's training facility over the next two days for treatment, workouts and light shooting, the team won't reconvene on the floor until Tuesday.
