Default Doc Rivers

I've never been a huge Doc Rivers fan, but tonight he proved a lot to me. The team was prepared and they played smart.

Article on Rivers' impact on Game 5

Doc Rivers >>>>>>>>>>>>> Flip Saunders…

I just don't understand why Celtic fans bash Doc when he has done a substantial job of bringing this team to the NBA Finals™

Doc is not good at adjustments.

Hes a great motivator and hes respected, but he always looks scared to make adjustments

I know TOny Allen cant shoot, but it would not hurt for him to play 10 mins a game for defensive purposes. hes still athletic and can run when we do run.

Boston needs to figure out how to counteract the press detroit does. All those high lobs when doubles come are recipes for disaster.

Its not hard to coach better than Flip

Schematically Doc rivers is very very lacking.
Thats why Ainge had to get him a new defensive coordinator
And if you see the changes doc made in Game 5 with Ray opposed to how Ray's been used till this point. You'll notice how much of Ray's struggles are due to poor game planning and execution.

That was the First time I've truly seen Ray get clean looks and set plays.

I can't believe they didn't even try a backcourt pick? Like it seems so obvious watching on TV, but Detroit just kept that press on every single time on Cassell especially, and noone set a pick for him. Is that the players or coaches fault?
