Doc Rivers Concerned Celtics May Have Given Sixers Confidence With Way Boston Finished Game 1

BOSTON -- Losing in the playoffs is supposed to be demoralizing. Yet when the Philadelphia 76ers walked away from their one-point loss to the Celtics in Game 1 of their second-round playoff series, they looked almost encouraged, not disheartened. And that caused some concern for Celtics coach Doc Rivers. The Celtics won Game 1 at home, but their inability to put away the Sixers until...

Doc Rivers Named to NBA Competition Committee, One of First Coaches to Join Recomposed Body

PHILADELPHIA -- Doc Rivers will soon have the power to make rules. The Celtics coach will not have the power to, say, decide a late-game screen by Kevin Garnett was legal or anything, but he will be one of the first coaches to vote on proposed rule changes as a member of the NBA's competition committee, the league announced Wednesday. Rivers was one of three coaches named to...

Celtics offense leaves them small margin of error

As any Boston Celtics fan with a pair of working eyes knows, the Celtics offense can very closely resemble a driver stuck in traffic — moving nowhere fast, it makes less sense to dwell on the lack of forward progress than it does to blast music, telephone a friend and generally do whatever you can to keep your mind off all the goddamn cars stuck in place.As Paul Flannery writes...

The Philly Phace Off – Has Andre Iguodala Redeemed Himself?

Andre Iguodala, often malligned for coming up small in key situations, hit two free throws with 2.2 seconds left on the clock to lead the Sixers to a 79-78 win and a series win. Is Leading the 76ers to a series win enough to redeem himself? The Philly Phace Off is Philly Sports World’s new weekly Thursday feature. Every Thursday, Rob and Wayne will debate a topic.

Avery Bradley’s shoulder popped back in, but still an issue moving forward

Avery Bradley’s shoulder popped out, the team doctor shoved it back in and Bradley rested for a couple quarters. He later returned in the final frame to provide some clutch play, but the shoulder issue isn’t going away.As Doc Rivers explained, “This is the third time now in two weeks his shoulder’s come out. Can’t be a good feeling. Number one, it has to hurt like heck...

Examining How Bill Belchick and Doc Rivers Talk With The Media About Injuries

They are both among the longest-tenured head coaches in their respective leagues. They have both won conference and league championships. They both seemingly manage to get more out of their teams than the roster talent would indicate. But when it comes to dealing with the media, Bill Belichick and Doc Rivers could not be more different. Or are they more alike than a surface examination...

Lou Williams a Concern for Celtics in Clutch Situations Against Sixers

BOSTON -- The mostly commonly heard knock on the Sixers this season is that the lack of a clear No. 1 scoring option hinders them in close games. Andre Iguodala, the 76ers' best player, is a standout defender and a fierce finisher on the break. Elton Brand, their most well-paid player, has become little more than a $17 million role player. Jrue Holiday, probably their best offensive...

Nash, Rivers honored for being media-friendly

Suns point guard Steve Nash and Celtics head coach Doc Rivers were honored Monday by the Professional Basketball Writers Association for their cooperation with media and fans. Nash received the Magic Johnson Award, while Rivers won the Rudy Tomjonavich Award. Last year's winners were Kevin Durant of the Thunder and Jerry Sloan of the Jazz, respectively. The PBWA also honored...

Gm 1 flashback: KG blocks Iguodala, Dooling finishes

Not sure what was the more spectacular play. KG blocking the high-flying Andre Iguodala from behind or Keyon Dooling finishing on the break. Can you name the top rated defensive player in the playoffs? It's Kevin Garnett (88.1 defensive rating). Rajon Rondo is fourth.  I believe there's an old saying... defense wins championships.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Coaches Doc Rivers of Boston, Rick Carlisle of Dallas and Lionel Hollins of Memphis have been named to the NBA's Competition Committee. Formerly made up of the league's 30 general managers, the committee now is comprised of three coaches, two owners, four GMs and one representative from the NBA players' association. Cleveland's Dan Gilbert and Golden...

Celtics' Bench, Role Players Doing Their Jobs Despite Offensive Struggles Against Sixers

It usually isn't a good sign when Brandon Bass is the Celtics' leading scorer heading into the fourth quarter. On Monday night, Bass had that honor with 12 points, and Boston trailed 57-49. But, as head coach Doc Rivers emphasized, the role players' contributions weren't the reason the Celtics were behind -- the bench and players like Bass were why Boston was even...
