HARTFORD, Conn. - Doc Rivers continues to tinker with his starting lineup, as the Boston Celtics used their third different starting lineup in as many preseason games.

Joining the usual trio of starters - Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett - will be Brandon Bass and Jason Terry.

When asked about what he's looking for with the different lineups, Rivers said, "I just want to see them play. I'm not looking for one thing. I want to try different lineups. Eventually, one we'll like a lot."

The one player in the starting lineup who has garnered the most attention is Terry, a former Sixth man of the year award winner with the Dallas Mavericks in 2009.

"I'm very comfortable in either role," Terry told Comcast SportsNet's Mike Gorman. "Whatever it takes to help this team win a championship."
