Doc on Tech: ‘That’s on me’
Posted By Mike Petraglia On January 11, 2010 @ 11:51 pm In General | No Comments
Doc Rivers played the role of Bill Belichick on Monday night. He said responsibility for blowing his top and losing his cool while his team was losing the game was on him.
He admitted as much after his team dropped a 102-96 decision to the Atlanta Hawks at TD Garden, a game that turned on a dime when the Celtics head coach was assessed consecutive technical fouls for arguing a flagrant foul on Glen Davis when he tried to stop Marvin Williams from a lay-up with 6:16 left in the third and the Celtics up, 67-57.
