    Doc Rivers Sounds Off

    "[The start of game] was awful, we are playing awful. I'm clear not doing my job with this team. And I'm serious, I'm not trying to take a bullet for the team. And I told them that. I said, ‘We got to find something where every night, all 12 guys play the same way.' We did it for three games in a stretch. I told them that games 4 and 5 in that [six-game] winning streak were garbage; We just won the game. I gotta figure that out. I told the guys that, I gotta figure it out. Because I don't think the guys are honest with each other. I just don't think we have committed to being a good basketball team.

    "I think this team wants everything easy. They want the easy way out. They want to win easy. And I told them the only way you're going to win easy is your going to have to play hard. The harder you play, the easier the games become. We're taking the wrong approach. I gotta either find the right combination, the right guys, or we're going to get some guys out of here. It's the bottom line. Because this group right now, they are not playing right. It's in them to play right. But right now they haven't been -- either because I'm not getting to them, or they are not getting to each other. But at the end of the day, either we gotta do that, or we gotta make changes."
    Lets see how the team reacts next game. Doc is definitely threatening with roster moves.

    Would love to know which C or C's is at the center of Doc's displeasure... May not necessarily be who many think...

    His displeasure for last nights game should start with himself because there was a glimmer of hope to win that game... The unit of KG-Green-Pierce-Lee-Rondo should have started the 2nd half... I don't care about rotations or any of that crap... Frank had absolutely no answer for that rotation... You play who is hot until they cool off... Bass should not have ended the 2nd qtr on the floor... I think it was a tie game when he came in and it went to down 4 at half...

    At this point it should be a qtr by qtr process... There's been so many games where it was close at half not because of the 1st unit but because of a mix... Doc needs to stop starting the 2nd half with the first unit if the game calls for something different... That's how you shake things up... Guys are used to being benched during a game... take away a starting role to start a game or half and that should be a wake up call...

    Bass definitely didn't play well and Green needed more minutes.

    Yum. This team needs exactly what Doc is hinting towards.

    Hopefully this team can wake up and start playing like they are capable of.

    That game was just an open cookie jar for Andre Drummond

    Doc is right we needa make a move in a certain direction. This team needs to light a fire under its *** or eiither aquire a difference maker in the frontcourt so we can legit contend, or if this isnt feasable, lets blow it up and start from scratch(as much as i dont wanna go back to those pre 08 days). sigh.....

    IF the rebuilding started between the end of 2010 and the trade deadline in 2011-2012, we'd have a lot more ammo to work with now.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    I'm glad we didn't blow it up last year before the playoffs, I really think if the refs gaave ud our fair shake against miami that we woulda made the finals, from there its all speculation, but I think we were better in 5 of the 7 games against the heat last year and just couldn't get the calls and bounces to go our way

    We almost lost to Philly in 7 games, that team didn't deserve to win and it didn't.

    I agree with Doc on this one, this team needs a swift kick in the ***, and heads need to start rolling now. They have lost 4 straight now, incl NO, Det and Cle, all sub 500 teams. The only close game was Chicago and thats a team with out Rose and Deng for the 2nd half. What we have isn't working, to me, no one should be considered safe except Sully. He seems to be the only one playing like he deserves a paycheck. I'm so fed up with these guys, I can't wait for the start of baseball season. Blow it up Danny, it couldn't be any worse than it has been through the first half of the season. Aside from LA, this has to be the most disappointing team in the NBA.
