The Boston Celtics beat the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night in overtime. The Green have now won five games in a row and visit the Philadelphia 76ers Wednesday night.

Celtics center Greg Stiemsma joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich on Wednesday to discuss the win over Houston, Kevin Garnett and the recent run by the Celtics.

With an injury to Jermaine O’Neal, Garnett has been moved over to center. So far he has played very well at the five,despite reports that Garnett doesn’t like playing the position. Will the Celtics continue to play him at center due to the success he’s having at the position?

“I think with KG at the five that makes us solid all around,” said Stiemsma. “With KG at the five, whether he likes it or not, we’re winning games and he’s going to do whatever it takes to win.”

Is there a feeling on this team, now that they are playing better and winning, that if management were to break things that it would almost seem like they didn’t get their shot?
