More minutes for Marbury?

Posted By Jessica Camerato On April 19, 2009 @ 3:23 pm In General | 1 Comment

Stephon Marbury [1] played 10 minutes in the Celtics [2] Game One loss to Chicago. Head coach Doc Rivers [3] thinks that may not have been enough.

Marbury was scoreless after attempting just two shots. It wasn’t that he couldn’t get open, either. Marbury has been playing selflessly since joining the Celtics, often passing up his own looks.

“Steph’s going to be fine. He should have been more aggressive but I should have played him more,” Rivers said after practice on Sunday. “I don’t think I played Steph enough last night to get him going. I thought in the first half the second unit actually had a nice little rhythm going, and in the second half I didn’t play him as much.”

Marbury has a postseason career average of 18.4 points, 6.5 assists, and 3.7 rebounds in 41.1 minutes. Prior to this series, he played his last playoff game in 2004 with the New York Knicks [4].
