Doc Rivers to Coach Eastern Conference All-Stars

by February 02, 2011

Rivers will need to re-schedule his plans for All-Star weekend, as last night’s win will force him to work instead of spending time with the fam. From the Boston Globe: “He had other plans on All-Star Weekend. One of his sons has a district tournament. But by beating the Kings, the Celtics guaranteed that Rivers would head to Los Angeles for the All-Star Game on Feb. 20. Down 9 at halftime, though, the his team had Rivers sweating. ‘We had his blood pressure up tonight,’ Garnett said. ‘Sometimes he needs that. In all seriousness. I’m happy for him, happy for his staff. We see the countless hours they always put in. We’re not always liking the preparation for it, but we know a lot goes into our gameplan and it starts with those guys, him and his staff.'”
