PLAYERS: Doc Rivers
Eastern-conference
But the Celtics are one of the Eastern Conference teams most predicted would finish ahead of the Bulls this season. And they won the first game between the teams last month. But the Bulls went to 14-10 with the victory and the sagging Celtics back to .500. “I think we have the right group,” said Rivers. “We’re going to keep searching. But this (Celtics) team is not a good team right now. This is who we are, a .500 team. They played hard, moved the ball, took us out of everything with their effort. They cut harder. They were clearly the tougher team, more physical team. It wasn’t even close.” via Bulls.com

Doc Rivers Says Celtics Are Not A Veteran Team

With a slew of veterans with varying levels of experience, the Boston Celtics have the appearance of a veteran team. But as Celtics coach Doc Rivers points out, there’s more to having a veteran team than simply throwing together a bunch of guys who have been around the NBA block a few times. “Where I think people get mixed up, there’s a difference between a veteran team and...

Doc Rivers Admits Celtics Are ‘Not a Good Team Right Now’ After Another Loss

The Celtics lost again on Tuesday night, something that has become quite the trend through the first quarter of the NBA season. The C’s, who were one game from the NBA Finals, just a few months ago, now find themselves sitting at .500 with a 12-12 record.

Recap: The two most annoying Bulls beat crap out of the Celtics

We’re using this photo way too much this year… Nate Robinson bugged the **** out of me when he was with the Celtics with is ill-advised threes… but Doc Rivers always said he would occasionally win you a game.  He did tonight for the Bulls, dropping 5 of 7 three pointers in a 100-89 Bulls win.  To add to this craptastic effort, Joakim Noah dropped a triple double on the C’s...

Celtics win a game they should, beat Cavs 103-91

In an effort to give me an aneurysm, Doc Rivers decided to shuffle his starting lineup tonight to include the JET and Jason Collins. There was some speculation that Collins was garnering the start to try and slow down Anderson Varejao, but Varejao was held out of tonight’s game at the last minute so I proceeded to have a full-blown conniption at that point. But the Celtics beat...

The Savior is still a few weeks away

As the Celtics get ready for the Bulls tonight, Avery Bradley is trying to get himself back in the mix.  The good news is that after a couple of days working out, all is going well… but he’s not coming back for a little while. “We’ll try to get a few weeks of practice under my belt before I start thinking about playing in a game,” said Bradley, who underwent offseason...

Wilcox happy for team despite DNP; Green possibly not as much

Doc Rivers has changed his rotations this week. Two players impacted have been Chris Wilcox and Jeff Green. Wilcox registered a DNP last night as Doc gave Jason Collins the starting center role. Doc seems to have listened to me and has started using Green almost exclusively as the backup small forward the past two games. For one reason or another Green can not defend 4's and...
