The Celtics were hoping to get more from Rasheed Wallace in Game Four. Doc Rivers said Wallace's back was loose and he seemed to be moving better in the hours leading up to the game. He was limited to 18 minutes and made just one field goal in Game Three.
"It's not as much his back anymore, it's his conditioning," said Doc Rivers. "The two weeks or three weeks of literally just playing in games, they catch up to you conditioning wise. But I think over the last four or five days he's been running every day, just trying to get his wind back to sustain it more."
