5 p.m. ET: The Celtics were lucky to have back-to-back games on their schedule with their star point guard, Rajon Rondo, suspended for two games after fighting with Nets forward Kris Humphries. Boston is able to get the games out of the way against lesser opponents before Rondo can come back. The 9-7 Celtics will take on the 7-7 Bucks for the third time this season, after splitting the first two back in early November. The Bucks started the 2012-13 season off hot going 6-2, but they’ve been in a nosedive since — dropping six of their last seven, including a 95-85 loss to the Timberwolves on Friday night. Courtney Lee will be expected to fill Rondo’s shoes for a second-straight night on Saturday. Lee had 10 points with seven rebounds and five assists on Friday night against the Trailblazers in a 96-78 victory where Boston never trailed. It was Lee’s season-high in assists. Jason Terry had a big game against Portland, scoring 17 points while shooting 7 for eleven from the field. He is expected to guard Brandon Jennings. Larry Sanders had his first triple double of his career on Friday night. He recorded 10 blocks, 10 points and 12 rebounds against Minnesota.
