Photo by Kathryn Riley/ The puzzle pieces are coming together. Last season, the Celtics depth ended up being more blessing than curse. With so many players trying to live up to expectations and gunning for their next contract, Boston’s talented roster was a recipe for disaster. This season, a seasoned rookie class and a handful of veterans seemed to have gelled and everybody will have a chance to contribute. On Thursday, Brad Stevens said, “I can tell you right now five guys that are going to play a lot. I’m sure you can write down who you know those five are (Kemba Walker, Jayson...
