Default Doc Rivers already a Barbosa fan

Rivers is thoroughly impressed with veteran Leandro Barbosa, who came off the bench to score 16 points in 16 minutes against the Heat. Barbosa made six of eight shots, including all three 3-pointers.

“He’s been playing unbelievable,” Rivers said. “The first practice, I was like, ‘How the hell was he [a free agent]?’ And he does things that drive you nuts, but the good news is we have so many guys that when he does that, you can put somebody else in.”

Hard to play him it seems. Can't trust him as a PG because he's shoot-first in mentality. The pecking order at SG includes Lee and Terry above him (and Bradley when he returns). Hard to get him a lot of minutes, I don't really see a line he'd be ideal in (maybe Rondo-Barbosa-Green-Sullinger-Bass/Wilcox or some type of bench line)
