Doc Rivers Calls Out Rasheed Wallace

by May 03, 2010

If ‘Sheed was the type of guy who cared, this would probably motivate him heading into Game 2 of the Cavs series tonight. Alas, he is who he is. From WEEI: “Rasheed Wallace has said all season that the playoffs are what motivates him, but after a disastrous regular season, the playoffs have been pretty much the same story for the Celtics prized free agent acquisition. Wallace picked up three quick fouls in the first half and went 1-for-5 in 13 minutes of Game 1 against the Cavaliers. He was also a liability again on the defensive end where his rotations were slow and his help defense was lacking. ‘He has to play better, bottom line,’ Doc Rivers said Sunday. ‘He has to play better defense. The offense will come but he has to be a better defender. We can’t wait. He has to play better.”’
