“I told him in our exit meetings that his talent is in him, it’s all between his ears. I think he can be a really good player. He’s still relatively young and so we’re going to try to get him out of him.” Doc Rivers Facing a potential elimination against the Sixers may not be the most indicated moment to experiment with the lineups, but Doc Rivers may be forced to do so, regarding the team´s crowded injury list. Without Avery Bradley, with Pietrus running on one knee and Ray Allen virtually playing with chained ankles it is time to give some minutes to someone else in the wings. You have only three choices: Marquis Daniels, Sasha Pavlovic and E'Twaun Moore. While Daniels is Doc´s current first choice for garbage minutes, I believe Sasha should get a bigger role in the rest of the playoffs.

Rumor: Doc Rivers courted by Magic?

Rumors are that the Magic's dream hire would be to somehow convince the Celtics coach to relocate from Boston to where he lives and take over the team's vacant GM position.

Report: Orlando wants Doc Rivers

ESPN's Chris Broussard says the Orlando Magic want Doc Rivers: The mere mention of Shaq, even if he turns out to be something more than a courtesy candidate, surely (and sadly) overshadows the most interesting part of Broussard's notebook-on-TV report, which revealed that the Magic's secret dream is trying to find a way to convince Doc Rivers to leave the Boston Celtics...

ESPN Report: Orlando Magic pursuing Doc Rivers for front office position

Just heard this on ESPN Sportscenter. Of course Doc won a Coach of the Year award in Orlando and still makes his home there. I don't blame the Magic for pursuing Doc. You probably can convince Dwight Howard to stay in Orlando with Doc on board. That said, Doc recently signed a multi year deal to continue as coach of the Boston Celtics, so I'd be very surprised if he left...

Hollins or Stiemsma? (Vote in the poll)

Doc Rivers today had the following to say in the Boston Globe about the Ryan Hollins and Greg Stiemsma tandem. "As this series goes on it's starting to look for us like Leon and Baby. You play one, the other one gets mad, you play the other one. And they push each other. That's what Ryan and Greg are doing for each other, and that's a good thing." Personally...

Avery Bradley has shoulder surgery today

From WEEI: Celtics coach Doc Rivers announced at Friday morning's practice that Avery Bradley had surgery Friday on his ailing left shoulder and is out for the playoffs. Bradley was diagnosed with a sore rotator cuff during the first round series with the Hawks and attempted to play with pain. But early in the third quarter of Game 4 last Friday in Philadelphia, his shoulder...

Ray Allen felt a better rhythm in Game 6

Think back to the Oklahoma City Thunder defeat right before the All-Star break. A team-building game, Doc Rivers called it. There’s no such thing as a team-building 15-point loss, the crowd shouted back at him. Not for these Boston Celtics.Flash forward to Game 6. A rhythm-builder, Ray Allen called it. There’s no such thing as a rhythm-building 4-for-11 from the field, including...

Rajon Rondo Hits Wall at Worst Time for Celtics, Who Need of Guard to Step Up

PHILADELPHIA -- Like a dad handing over the car keys to his son on prom night, Celtics coach Doc Rivers placed his team's fate in Rajon Rondo's hands on Wednesday. It was time to trust the point guard. Instead of triumphantly justifying Rivers' decision, however, Rondo ground the gears, spilled soda on the upholstery and returned the family sedan with a big scratch on...

76ers win survival quarter, force 7th game with Celtics

PHILADELPHIA -- The third quarter -- "the survival quarter," according to Boston coach Doc Rivers -- again proved pivotal in Game 6 of the NBA Eastern Conference semifinal series Wednesday night between the Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers. Whichever team outscored the other in that period has won all six games in the series and, on Wednesday, the Sixers owned a 27-20 advantage...

Quick turnaround doesn't bother Celtics

The Celtics are going to the Eastern Conference finals, but they won't have a lot of time to think about it. The C's earned the date with Miami when Rajon Rondo scored 11 points in the last four minutes to pull his team away from Philadelphia, 85-75, in Game 7 Saturday night. Less than 48 hours after that final buzzer, they will be facing the Heat on Monday night. ...
