No Perkins For Game 6

After being injured in Game 4, Kendrick Perkins sat out Game 5 and looks like he will be sitting out Game 6 with a shoulder injury.

Celtics centre Kendrick Perkins missed Game 5 with a shoulder injury and is not expected to be ready for Game 6. Beyond that, Pierce isn’t at his best, Rajon Rondo is slowed by a tender ankle and Ray Allen left Los Angeles immediately following Sunday’s game because of a “health issue” with one of his three children. But Boston is comforted by being at home, where they are 12-1 in the postseason, where the parquet-patterned floor soothes any nerves and where the 16 championship banners hanging overhead link the Celtics to their past and remind them of their goal.
