Default Larry Sanders stepping up lately, including last night in win over Celtics

Scott Skiles wanted to insert Larry Sanders into the Milwaukee Bucks' starting lineup for Saturday night's game against the Boston Celtics. The coach relented when the high-energy forward said he preferred a reserve role.
It sure looks as if Sanders knows what's best for him.
He had a career-high 18 points and 16 rebounds to go along with five blocked shots, and the Bucks rallied for a 91-88 victory after the Celtics scored the first 17 points of the game.
''I embrace that role, coming off the bench and trying to provide energy, whether we are down or whether we are up. That's where I plan on staying,'' Sanders said.
Sanders' performance impressed his coach.
''He was doing everything he does when he plays well,'' Skiles said. ''He was blocking shots, he was running the floor, he was on the boards and got some baskets around the goal. He played really well.''
