Entering Sunday's game, Rasheed Wallace had taken 26 shots for the Celtics, 20 of those are 3-pointers. Wallace is a 6-feet-11 but has spent the past several season living near the 3-point line., Doc Rivers was asked whether he was comfortable with Wallace shooting so many 3-pointers. He was 2-for-6 this season on two-point shots, by the way.

"I think he'll be on the block as the year goes on a little bit more," Rivers said. "Him and Kevin *(Garnett) are who they are, they are two bigs that shoot extremely well from the outside. They do go to the post occasionally. But the combination of them both gives us a post player. Not one will be a guy who goes down (in the post) every time. But if you combine the post possessions between those two and (Kendrick Perkins) then we do have a lot of post players. And that the same thing with Paul (Pierce)."
