David Lee logged his second consecutive DNP — Coach’s Decision during Wednesday’s loss to the Detroit Pistons. Lee is averaging 7.2 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.8 assists over 15.7 minutes per game in 29 appearances this season.

“Coach [Brad Stevens] came to me and said we’re going to try and go small at the 4, which means Kelly [Olynyk] and Jonas [Jerebko],” Lee said. “That’s why [Jared Sullinger] has been out of the starting lineup. That was his theory on some changes he wanted to make after us losing a couple of games, so I told him while I disagree with it, I also told him he’s the coach and can choose to do that.”
