Doc Rivers Not Looking Forward Towards Match-Up Against Son
“I’m actually not,” said Rivers, whose club will take a six-game win streak onto the parquet. “I still don’t know how to feel about it. “I’ve always thought he had a shot to be in the league, but I never thought about coaching against him. You don’t ever think about that part. “I’ll be glad when the game’s over. I can put it that way.”
“I don’t care if he’s Doc’s kid,” Jeff Green said. “Is he going to get mad at me? I mean, he wants us to stop him, right? If he comes into the lane, I’m going to hit him. Welcome to the NBA, kid.”
Added Pierce, “I knew he’d be an NBA player. I had a chance to play him one-on-one when he was like in the 10th grade, and I think I went upstairs and told Doc, ‘You’ve got an NBA player right here.’ I knew from there he’d be able to make it to the NBA.”
