Avery Bradley thinks there are changes to the starting lineup for Game 4.
Avery Bradley said starters are likely going to be changed. Said maybe a few people. He's starting though.
Avery Bradley: "It's like LeBron turns it up at a certain point of the fourth quarter."
Bradley: "We're all playing as hard as we can. Balls aren't bouncing our way. It's disappointing we weren't as consistent in these 3 games."
Bass on fixing team's rebounding issues: "It's just a mindset of putting a body on the guy you're guarding."
Bass on Game 4: "We're fighting to play another day. Coach is preparing us to go out there and give the maximum effort."
Brandon Bass on the mindset: "Fight to play another day."
Jared Sullinger (bruised tailbone) did not practice today. Listed as probable. Celtics need his rebounding.
Stevens on Sullinger, who's probable for Game 4: "Sully has a bruised tailbone. He was unable to get up and down the court today."
Sullinger missed practice with bruised tailbone. Probable for tomorrow.

Stevens: "Taking yesterday off, I'm sure everybody's licking their wounds. But tomorrow's a new day and an opportunity to play well."
I wonder if Doc Rivers can bear to watch Pierce's postseason performances knowing he paid Spencer Hawes instead of potentially having him.
Looks like the Spurs are Spursing again.
Kinda curious how the Clippers respond to a backs-against-the-wall game.
Washington trying to prove that a team can actually win with Drew Gooden on it.
Paul Pierce: The Closer. 11 4th quarter points with 3-3 from the arc. Pierce 'protege' Otto Porter helps big with 7 4th Q points.
The Truth. "Setting himself free since 1999"
Wizards about to go up 3-0. Otto Porter with career friendly break out in this series.
Gortat has 24 to lead Wash, but actually has passed up a few he should have taken.
Pierce and Porter with multiple 3s to put the crush on Toronto.
Except for Spurs-Clippers because that series is everything
Hot take: The first round is fun but unnecessary
Amazing: the Rockets start Jason Terry and the Mavericks still have the two most washed up guys on the court.
Writing some advertising copy for the first time. I should be drinking scotch, right?
Hey Boston, why are you still cold?
And "doesn't suck" as a Bourdainism. It's my way of saying Boston fans are pretty neat.
I'll say this about Boston fans: Been to lots of games in lots of cities, and fans here suck less than everywhere else.
Every click and response to that horrible Cavs column is a victory for horrible columns everywhere. Ignore + prosper, Boston.
Don't misunderstand, I am proud of Boston players and coach. Too big a hill to climb.
I have never thought this series would anything different than what is so far. Best case scenario: a good tune up for Cavs for going forward
The only real question of the Cs/Cavs series is how hard have they actually made Cleveland play. The answer: just hard enough.
Gigi Datome last night: "We must keep playing w/pride for sure Sunday, because I think we deserve to win 1 game. We are so close every time"
This has been travel tips with pflanns.
When trying to ensure people don't talk to you on a flight, I've found blasting Rocket From The Crypt to be a useful deterrent.
No matter the end, this playoff series has been really valuable for the Celtics. They've fought, too.
