Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he has a hard time diagnosing his team’s mood before the game. He also said it doesn’t really matter all that much.

“You don’t want to be loose,” said Rivers. “You want to be nervous, tight, and whatever. But when the game comes you usually exhale and play…it comes down to if it goes in, or if it doesn’t go in. It’s not much more complicated than that.”

His team led the NBA with 66 wins during the regular season, but Rivers said that doesn’t mean a thing.

“I don’t think there’s any more pressure on us than on them," he said. "It’s Game 7 and the loser goes home."
