Doc Rivers thinks Ray Allen will be ready for the playoffs

Doc Rivers didn’t seem like he had any real medical basis for his belief. Boston’s head coach has spoken several times over the past week or two about the growing concern surrounding Ray Allen’s ankle. But when asked whether uncertainty about Allen’s status made it all the more important that the team’s backup wings performed admirably last night in extended minutes,...

NBA sets new mark for minority coaches

Doc Rivers was a little surprised by the number, though not by the trend. Fourteen NBA head coaches are black, tying the league's own record for the most ever in a sport and nearly half of its 30 teams. With Mexican-American Kaleb Canales of Portland and Miami coach Erik Spoelstra, a Filipino-American, the NBA has 16 coaches of color, its most ever, according to Richard Lapchick...

Doc Rivers talks about Ray Allen in Playoffs: “I do think he will be ready”

The Boston Celtics have a long history of down-playing injuries to key players. Doc Rivers, the man who never claimed to be a doctor, has taken a familiar tone regarding Ray Allen‘s ankle/foot injury. In post-seasons’ past, the Celtics have handled injury issues with Shaquille O’Neal and Kevin Garnett with similar rhetoric regarding the timeline [...]

Your Morning Dump... Where the Celtics earned the road

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “Well, we’d rather not, honestly,’’ Rivers said of opening on the road. “It would have been easier to open up at home but we’re just not. “We had to make tough choices. You know, looking...

Enemy Chatter: Doc Rivers was the best guard on the court

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Miami. - No Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo or Kevin Garnett for Boston. What exactly did Paul Pierce do to deserve this? -- As for Pierce being punished alongside what remained of the Celtics, coach Doc...

Kevin Garnett added to long Boston Celtics injury list; Rondo, Pietrus, Allen, Stiemsma also out against Heat

BOSTON — As Doc Rivers mentioned Tuesday before the Boston Celtics meet the Miami Heat, it’s easier to say who is playing for the Celtics during these dog days at the end of the zany lockout season, rather than trying to rattle off all the stars who won’t suit up. And so it took just one first [...]

Celtics-Bucks pregame report: Missing Celtics down to Stiemsma, Allen

BOSTON — The Boston Celtics have been so struck by petty injuries at the tail end of this lockout season that Doc Rivers has a hard time keeping his healthy players straight. Asked before Thursday night’s game who would play, Rivers initially responded, “Everyone.” That isn’t actually the case — Ray Allen had already been [...]

Ray Allen No More Than 'Probable' to Play for Celtics in Playoff Opener (Video)

BOSTON -- Doc Rivers has been hopeful for weeks that Ray Allen would return before the regular season ended. With Allen out of the lineup for Thursday's season finale against the Milwaukee Bucks, that scenario is no longer possible, and a full return for Game 1 of the Celtics' first-round playoff series against the Hawks is not likely. Rivers, using a football term, called...

Celtics Prefer Health, Rest Over Homecourt Pursuit

While the Celtics could possibly overtake the Hawks for homecourt advantage in their probable first round series, Doc Rivers prefers getting his team healthy.

Ray Allen out tomorrow, could play Thursday & other practice notes

Twitter / @ChrisMannixSI: Doc Rivers says Ray Allen ... via kwout I'm not sure what to make of this anymore.  Ray Allen's ankle will hold him out at least one more game.  It would be nice if the ankle was strong enough to get at least one more game in before the playoffs.   Meanwhile, Rajon Rondo, Mickael Pietrus, and Greg Stiemsma all also...

E’Twaun Moore, NBA lockout casualty, impressing teammates and coaching staff

The NBA lockout hurt this season’s level of play and resulted in a crazy schedule which sometimes leaves us with Sasha Pavlovic, isolating at the top of the key as the third-quarter shot clock winds down. This is not meant to insult Pavlovic in any way, as he has performed admirably this season and especially well last night, and even scored a bucket on the aforementioned isolation...

Celtics beat Heat as stars sit out

BOSTON - All year long, Celtics coach Doc Rivers has been telling anyone who would listen that reserve guard Sasha Pavlovic has got game. Real game. Tuesday night, without Boston's big names to defer to when he was on the floor, Pavlovic scored a season-high 16 points, 12 in the fourth quarter, to lead the Celtics' other guys to a 78-66 victory over the Heat's other...

Celtics beat Bucks in regular-season finale

BOSTON - Throughout the closing days of the regular season, the Celtics' brass made it clear homecourt advantage in a first-round series with the Hawks was no big deal and that it was more important to rest their aging legs. Now, they're going to find out just how important that home floor will be. Both the Celtics and the Hawks won their regular-season finales Thursday...
