Wedman Finishes Game 3 at Guard

Thanks to Danny Ainge's third-quarter ejection, and the fact that for the third straight game Jerry Sichting wasn't having much of a night, Jones finished the game with Robert Parish, Kevin McHale, Bird, Dennis Johnson and Scott Wedman on the floor. Wedman replaced Rick Carlisle with 5:08 to go and stayed out there for the rest of the game, coming up with a couple of big defensive plays as the Celtics were pitching a shutout during the final four minutes. "I put Scotty in because he's a veteran and a good post-up player," explained Jones. No one is going to stop Spud (Webb) anyway, so we put Scotty in. Unfortunately, they took Spud out." . . . Webb, incidentally, had 14 points, 6 assists and shot 6 for 7.
