Default Doc Rivers hates touch-fouls

Rivers, who often yearns for the no-blood, no-foul nature of his playing days, gets frustrated by the constant stop-and-start nature that develops from ticky-tack fouls. Maybe that's why the Celtics spent much of Tuesday's practice focused on pick-and-roll defense, a chance to remind his team how to avoid those tempo-killing calls.

"Every time they call a foul it's worse, because the game stops," said Rivers. "If it's a touch foul, I never liked touch fouls. I think that's why the playoff basketball is so good. They still do the same fouls, but they don't call it as much, and the game is being played. It's a more physical game, but the guards can still move freely. I've always liked it that way better."

Last week before the Spurs and Tony Parker visited TD Garden, Rivers reflected on the multiple variety of point guards the league sees now.
