Terry rests; KG, Pierce, Green start
By Greg Payne
Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce and center Kevin Garnett returned to the lineup against the Orlando Magic on Saturday night after sitting out of Friday's 109-101 loss to the Miami Heat due to scheduled rest.
Jason Terry, meanwhile, gets the rest treatment from head coach Doc Rivers on Saturday after logging 28 minutes in Friday's loss. For Terry, it's just his first missed game of the season.
Jeff Green started on Saturday, despite leaving Friday's game early in the fourth quarter after bruising his left elbow on a fall following an emphatic dunk. Green downplayed the severity of the injury after the game, and isn't expected to be limited on Saturday.
Pierce, Garnett and Green started alongside Avery Bradley and Brandon Bass.
