The Celtics lost to the San Antonio Spurs 112-100 tonight, being out-rebounded in the offensive glass by six to one. Doc Rivers, though, said he could not care less about the offensive rebounding numbers. Kevin Garnett, who finished the game with 14 points and three rebounds, had a few things to say about rebounding, too. [...]

Doc Rivers: Lakers embarrassed Phil Jackson, he was owed more than that

The Los Angeles Lakers’ coaching change situation that took place a little over a week ago was about as bizarre as it gets. The fact that it occurred just a handful of games into the regular season made it even stranger. As you know, the Lakers eventually settled on Mike D’Antoni as their next head coach after firing Mike Brown. Whether D’Antoni was the right choice or not...

Rivers blasts Lakers for treatment of Jackson

Boston Celtics Coach Doc Rivers gave his take on the Lakers' coaching change to Chris Russo (SirusXM's Mad Dog Radio) on Tuesday, criticizing the organization for their handling of Phil Jackson. "I didn't like the way it was done," said Rivers. "I don't think you embarrass anybody." After relieving Mike Brown of his coaching duties, the Lakers...

Doc says Darko is free to go

On WEEI's Dennis and Callahan show this morning, Celtics head coach Doc Rivers discussed the state of the team, and had this to say about Darko Milicic: "It's up to him right now. He has some family issues, more his mom. Not playing, and being in another country, and the NBA hasn't gone exactly great for him over his career. So, it's a lot of reasons for him...

For Rivers, Another Reunion With The One That Never Was

If you thought the Ray Allen-Boston Celtics drama is tops on Doc Rivers' list on his worst negotiating failures, think again. Rivers still recalls as a “bigger failure” from 12 years ago to Rob Bradford from WEEI.com Green Street: “I lost a bigger one, and probably learned a lot of lessons from that. Tim Duncan in Orlando,” he said. “We never had him, but I...

Doc Rivers Spells Out Roles, Sets Tone for Celtics’ Statement Win Over Thunder

BOSTON — If Brian Butterfield is unavailable for any reason next summer, the Red Sox could always place a call to Doc Rivers. In the fourth quarter of Boston’s win on Friday, the Celtics coach resembled a third-base coach urging his team to continue pushing the ball against the reeling Oklahoma City Thunder. The only thing Rivers was missing was the exaggerated windmill motion...

Milicic may be leaving NBA for good

Doc Rivers saw a change in Darko Milicic a few weeks ago, almost as soon as the veteran center found out that his mother was ill. It was one thing for Milicic to deal with some professional setbacks with the Celtics, having played a grand total of five minutes all season. Adding personal angst made it even tougher. "His mom's sick, he's not playing, the homesickness...

Rondo The Silent Killer: YOUR 2012-2013 NBA MVP

I just got back from an 8-hour drive this Saturday with only one thing on my mind…except for a couple X-rated things. I just wanted to sit on my couch, watch the Celtics play the not so exciting Raptors. Why would I be so enthralled over one lousy regular season game? The answer has two words. RAJON RONDOOOOOOO.  Man, I haven’t been so excited over a player on the Celtics since...

Boston and San Antonio: Two of a Kind

Celtics Spurs: one of my favorite NBA match-ups. One that features the two preeminent big men of the new millennia as well as two of the league's best coaches. But the similarities don't end there. Both teams feature a trio of All-Stars who have sacrificed scoring, playing time, and salary for the good of their perspective teams. Doc Rivers has praised Gregg Popovich on...

Garnett Improves Celtics' Defense By 19.6 Points

The Celtics allow 94.6 points per 100 possessions when Kevin Garnett plays and 114.2 when he is on the bench.

Don't worry Celtics fans: Reinforcements are coming

There has been an air of negativity around the Celtics recently, due to their high expectations and slow start. The Celtics are currently 6-5, and 4th in the Atlantic Division, which we have ruled since the start of the Kevin Garnett era. We are ranked 22nd in defense, 30th in OREB%, and simply just look bad right now. But here is something I want to say: Do not forget we are missing...

Celtics Live Blog: Kevin Garnett, C’s Give Thanks for Getting Back on Court Against Kevin Durant, Thunder

8 a.m. ET: ‘Tis the season for giving, and the NBA schedule-makers gave the Celtics a challenging slate for the holidays. Two days after taking on the NBA’s most well-coached unit in the Spurs, the Celtics host arguably the league’s most talented roster when the Oklahoma City Thunder pay a post-Thanksgiving visit. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook will lead the Thunder (9...

KG is still the defensive captain

Zach Lowe/Grantland The Boston Celtics are significantly better on defense with Kevin Garnett on the floor. The Celtics allow 94.6 points per 100 possessions when Garnett plays and 114.2 when he is on the bench. The 19.6 point gap runs the spectrum from a defense amongst the NBA's best to worst. Even by using just the eyeball test, it's easy to see KG is still the defensive...

Why Didn't the Boston Celtics Try and Sign Tim Duncan

teammates? Ok, I know, there was no chance of the Boston Celtics signing Tim Duncan last offseason. He is a Spur for life and will probably go down as the best power forward to ever play this game (Kevin Garnett has a thing or two to say about that). Tim Duncan and Greg Popovich are the Tom Brady and Bill Belichick of the NBA, constant winners and always in contention. But all that...
