Doc Rivers has decided not to play Jason Terry tonight in Orlando. Tip-off against the Magic is in just less than an hour. — Boston Celtics (@celtics) April 13, 2013 Maybe Doc's decision to sit Terry has something to do with the comments he made regarding the Magic.

Sherrod Blakely's tweet from earlier this afternoon. #CelticsTalk: #celtics Doc rivers quipped about suspending Jason Terry for remaining 3 games for "running his mouth." — A.
