IIRC, Ime said the same thing last year - that in order to get JT and JB ready for the playoffs, they were going to ramp up their minutes in games they played but they would sit them down the stretch to make sure they were rested. I posted this in one or another thread a while back but I think JT played in 10 games over the last 30 days of the season prior to the MIA series.That said, I think it's a good idea to get Tatum some rest over the next few weeks. Brad Stevens has said they're going to do exactly that, and he made that statement well before the post-All Star break struggles. He also said it's important that Tatum gets a certain number of high-minute games. It sounds like the theory, either his or JT's, is that you can't just go from averaging 35 minutes a night to 42 minutes in the playoffs. You have to build up that stamina over time.
