PLAYERS: Doc Rivers
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
When a team is struggling, it’s never too soon to start talking about trades. The Boston Celtics have struggled to find their rhythm this season and a frustrating first half has been the result. Currently riding a five-game losing streak, a change could be coming for the Celtics. On Sunday night, a furious Doc Rivers threatened major changes if things didn’t improve, sparking even more trade talk. Whether this team needs a new addition to provide some hope, but more importantly scoring, or if they can pull it together with the pieces already in place remains to be seen. Rivers may have just given his players the motivation they needed, however. Although, they came away with a loss to the Knicks on Thursday night, Rivers was pleased with the effort they put forward and if they bring that intensity every night, the current team could be just fine as is.

Video: Doc Rivers discusses the loss of Rondo and moving forward

I would not be surprised to see the Celtics go on a decent run, as teams off circle the wagons after horrible news like this. We'll have to wait and see if Danny Ainge decides to start the rebuilding now or just play for the best record possible. As the coach, Rivers has to stay positive saying that the team's title hopes are still alive. I expect KG and Pierce to say the...

Rajon Rondo poses as Doc Rivers in pre-game interview

Apparently Rondo was joking around with reporters as he posed as Doc Rivers for the pregame interview with the media. I think that's pretty hilarious, but not as great as the time he pretended to be Sasha Pavlovic. A. Sherrod Blakeley didn't think it was very funny, provided a transcript and stuck his nose up at a couple of Rondo's comments. I think Blakely's problem...

BOSTON — The last time Paul Pierce stayed home for NBA All-Star Weekend, the Celtics’ record made it difficult to whine about the snub. The Celtics went 24-58 in the last year of the pre-”New Big Three” era while Pierce, for the first time in his career, spent more than a month watching with major injury as his team give away game after game. There is no serious injury this...

Underrated Stat of the Night - Hawks 1/25

The Celtics deserve to be kicked out of the league at this point in time. They were put in a situation where if they just had the will to win they would've won. I don't know how they managed to blow this one. They didn't even try in the second half. This game was handed to them and I feel bad for Doc Rivers. Tonight's USOTN goes to the decent performance of Jason...
