Celtics Call It A Season: Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett To Sit Against Washington

According to a tweet from Gary Washburn, the Celtics will not play Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, or Rajon Rondo in Monday’s game against the Washington Wizards.

With Sunday’s loss to the Miami Heat putting LeBron James and co. one game ahead of the Celtics for the second seed in the Eastern Conference with just two games to play, the Celtics appear to have called it quits on the regular season. Though the Celtics do hold the tiebreaker over Miami, the Heat aren’t likely to lose against either Toronto or an Atlanta team that, already locked into the fifth seed in the East, have nothing much to play for.

After Monday’s game in Washington, the Celtics will finish up the season in Boston against the Knicks—the team they will most likely be facing in the first round of the playoffs.
