Default Should Celtics consider lineup change?

ESPN Boston reports:

Celtics coach Doc Rivers has hinted at times this season that he'd consider a lineup shuffle to give his slumping team a jolt. One potential change the team could consider: Moving Chris Wilcox into the starting group alongside the Big Four.

While Wilcox's defense is a downgrade from that of current starter Jermaine O'Neal, his energy and athleticism could be exactly the boost the first unit needs. What's more, Wilcox's defensive rating is actually a career-best 98 so far this season and having the likes of Kevin Garnett alongside might aid some of his individual struggles both in pick-and-roll and post situations.

The Big Four and Wilcox lineup has logged a mere 16.4 minutes of floor time over three games this season, according to Basketball Reference, but, during that span, the Celtics have operated at a slightly elevated pace (89.4), outscored opponents (plus-9), and dominated on the glass (61.9 total rebound percentage; 84.6 defensive rebound percentage).

If Wilcox could stay healthy I'd have no problem with him as the starter.

I don't know but I'm sick of PP being "confident" (while I bet he cannot be) and speaking all the right words. They didn't have drive in the '10 season and they lost the game 7. Now they don't have it even more... Please. Do something
