Felger: 'Seed management' loss for Celtics

Felger: 'Seed management' loss for Celtics

Mike Felger thinks the Celtics planned to lose to the Bobcats.

Why?

Well, the C's benched Paul Pierce, and then gave Kevin Garnett just 21 minutes of playing time.

The reason for that, according to Felger, is simple: Being the 6th or 7th seed means they don't have to play the Heat until the Conference Finals, whereas a 4th or 5th seed means they have to play the Heat one series sooner.

The rest of the guys on the show - Glenn Ordway, Chris Gasper, and Kirk Minihane - are a little more skeptical of Felger's hunch.

What do you think?
