Rivers is limiting KG's minutes. KG only plays in spurts of 5 minutes then gets a rest. His involvement in the offense is not limited. It may appear like that because he is 36 years old and playing with a crappy defensive front court and cannot shoulder the entire defense on his own at this point of his career. The Celtics desperately need another defensive minded front court player because when KG is sitting, it's easy points time. That's what I'll be looking for tomorrow when the Celtics host my Nets.
