WALTHAM  –  Doc Rivers weighed in on ‘The Call’ following Celtics practice on Tuesday.

Asked if he had any reaction to uproar over Bill Belichick’s decision to go for it on fourth-and-2 from his own 28, Rivers, an avid NFL fan, replied [3], “You read your team, and if you like your team, you take risks. That’s what you do.

“But you don’t get do-overs in coaching and that’s the difference. Everything else, you get to sit around and talk about it after the fact. In coaching, you make your decision and you don’t apologize for it.”
