Doc Rivers still sorting out preseason starting lineup
 
Rivers said he hasn't settled on a starting lineup for Saturday's game, though he's begun discussions with his coaching staff. When the final minutes of practice were made available to the media, the Green Team, a.k.a. the starters, consisted of Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, Jason Terry, Courtney Lee, Brandon Bass and Kevin Garnett, so it's likely five of those six players will comprise Saturday's first unit. Rookie Jared Sullinger, who started in Boston's second game of the preseason against Armani Milano, was back in the white practice jersey worn by the reserves.

While the opening days of camp were dedicated to implementing the most basic of the team's sets, Rivers said the second and third weeks bring about a different focus.

Not surprising, setting a rotation has been the one thing Doc has been below average at his entire career. Really hoping he starts Lee and Sullinger this season to balance out the starter/bench production.

Sullinger will win the starting 4 spot, with they way he hits the glass.
