2012 NBA Playoffs, Celtics Vs. Sixers Game 7: Greg Stiemsma Feeling Better

The Boston Celtics are a banged up team, to say the least, as they head into Saturday night's game seven against the Philadelphia 76ers. Everyone from Paul Pierce, to back-up center, Greg Stiemsma, is feeling the effects of the long season.

According to Doc Rivers, Stiemsma asked out of game six because he was in pain. During Saturday's shootaround he was feeling much better.

In another positive sign, Greg Stiemsma took part on Saturday, a day after Doc Rivers said the backup center's feet were "feeling better."

"He couldn't play in the second half the other night," Doc Rivers said on Friday. "Funny, I put him and he walks up and says, ‘I can't go.' I thought he was walking up to go in. But he feels better and that's good."

Tip is scheduled for 8 PM on Saturday.
