What's up Doc? Clippers visit Celtics

http://www.espn.com/nba/preview?gameId=400975604

BOSTON -- Former Celtics coach Doc Rivers was in Boston on Sunday for the Paul Pierce retirement ceremony.
His visit was not purely ceremonial and also gave him an interesting perspective on the game.

"I was more of a coach because we play Boston Wednesday, so I was sitting there as a complete coach and scout," Rivers said Monday, when his Los Angeles Clippers won in Brooklyn. "But it still was really interesting to do that. I may have to do that more. It was really cool. I got a lot out of it, I really did."

The Clippers have won four of their last five games and are 4-2 since the mega deal that sent Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons, for a package that included former Celtic Avery Bradley, who makes his second return of the season to the TD Garden.

DeAndre Jordan, the big man and center of all kinds of rumors before the deadline, wasn't moved and had 16 points and 17 rebounds in Monday's victory that saw the visitors led by seven players in double figures.

"I think a lot of people slept on us when we got all these players but I think we're getting better and better," Los Angeles guard Austin Rivers said.

The Clippers are 12-5 in their last 17 games. They are 29-26 on the season, 2-1 on their current seven-game road trip.

They're going in the opposite direction of the Celtics, who were hammered by the Cleveland Cavaliers on Paul Pierce retirement night, their second loss in three days on their home floor.

Brad Stevens' team, once 16-2 after a 16-game winning streak, has gone 22-15 since reaching 18-3. At 40-18, they trail Toronto by one game for the division and conference leads.

Boston has missed the defensive intensity of Marcus Smart, who has been out after lacerating his right hand on a picture frame in an L.A. hotel room last month after missing a shot that would have beat the Lakers.

The next night, on the same Staples Center floor, Boston beat the Clippers.

Tuesday, a day after Steve Kerr let players diagram plays in the Golden State huddle, Stevens had the injured Gordon Hayward and Al Horford coaching at practice.

"We've done it in practice," Stevens said. "We did it a couple weeks ago where Al and Gordon both had the grease board. I can't remember if I've ever done it like in the middle of a game where players go and draw it up. We haven't been up that much very often. We've talked about that stuff. I totally get where Steve would be coming from with that."

Said Horford: "I was wracking my brain trying to come with (plays). We needed to come up with certain plays and I was like, 'I have no idea.' Once you start putting everything together and seeing what makes sense and what doesn't make sense. Coach is -- he is a genius, man. He's pretty smart."

The Celtics have taken the last two games against the Clippers at TD Garden.

Beat,

Enjoy the game!

If Marcus wants to spark a memory from his past, Michael will be playing back-to-back games for his AAU team tonight, and I'll be coaching. Told my wife I'd take her to a couple of basketball games for Valentines Day. I'm sure your family did something similar a great number of times.

Many times.

And according to Marcus we acquired a couple seats in the second row.

His work does have a few advantages.

Wonder if the Anderson’s got tickets to the game?

Bring us home a winner Beat. I almost bought tickets for Christmas for my son, my husband and I, but didn't pull the trigger and the seats I wanted were gone.  I am going to see the Grizzlies, my son bought them for us for Christmas before Conley got hurt.  I am still hoping to pick up some tickets for the three of us to go once my husband gets home from Florida.  I also have tickets to the last game, with some fingers and toes crossed that ??maybe??  Hayward plays??

Anyway, enjoy your game and your visit with Marcus.  Ah...the joys of retirement when you don't have to worry about tomorrow!!!

The Celtics look good or it feels different for the better so far. Maybe it's called Aron Baynes. He takes up so much room and is fast for a continent.

Tatum has to start the first quarter faster, he misses too many early shots, then goes in a hole for a while

Tatum with the yips? Tonight should be good. There shouldn't be a lid on the rim or this is getting psychological. .... That's Dick Vitale. He's too loud.

Hi all, this will be a tough game for the C's. Amazing how the landscape has changed after all these trades in both the East and West.

Isn't it funny, no one ever talks about how much Morris takes a lot of shots. They all love him

That was a quick pull of Tatum for Morris. Brad ain't messing around tonight. That's being proactive.

It'd be like "throwing someone under the bus" if they did.

Starting Baynes makes all the difference. Have the vet ballhog sub in for the rookie with yips at the smaller forward position. And then get Moose and Theis involved. Get the rotation in order. Bigs are bigs and then there is Tatum and Morris.

Down by 14 already.  I hope Monroe has a decent quarter, and help them under the basket.
