The modest improvement has the Celtics ranked 13th in the NBA in scoring defense (96.7 ppg) and 15th in field goal defense (44.4 percent). So it appears Doc’s “soft” quotes really have made an impact on this squad. But I think fans would like to see a nice stretch of wins and some consistency before jum...

Poll: Who is the better coach, Doc Rivers or Bill Belichick?

What a riveting interview! It's great the relationship that the coaches of the Celtics and Patriots have. One thing I always bring up is how Belichick called Rivers for his opinion on Brandon Spikes before drafting him, since Spikes was dating Rivers' daughter. Needless to say, that worked out pretty well. Be sure to check out PatriotsLife for the best coverage of the...
