Celtics will be tested

On Sunday the inconsistent Boston Celtics [1] bench will be tested by a newly improved New York Knicks [2] second unit. The trade for Al Harrington [3] gives the Knicks the luxury of having a starter come off the bench. Celtics head coach Doc Rivers [4] said the Knicks reserves were already deep with guard Nate Robinson [5] and the addition of Harrington gives the second unit even more weapons.

‘€œ[Harrington] can go from the post to the three-point line and the four spot, and it makes it a very difficult cover,’€ Rivers said after Saturday’s practice. ‘€œThey also put him at the three at times which makes them a more physical team. So I guess he’s giving them versatility. When you look at with (Zach) Randolph [6], he was a post guy. There was no doubt about that. He was going to go to the post, so I think that’s where they changed.”
