Celtics coach Doc Rivers said before tonight’s game that it’s easy to think in hindsight about all the things he should have done to stop Boston’s 15-game skid. However, Rivers said things have worked the way they have and he isn’t about to push the panic button.
“I’m not a big believer in big changes,” said Rivers. “First of all, I am who I am. I ain’t changing. And I believe in what I believe in offensively and defensively and that ain’t changing. I believe it’s the right thing. But you just have to stick with it.”
Rivers said he refuses to put the blame on his players for the losing streak.
“No matter how short we are with guys, when you lose, the coach is the first guy to think ‘What can we do differently?’ I don’t ever go to my players and say they should play better. I go to my coaches and tell them we have to do a better job. I don’t allow our coaches to ever complain about who we have. That’s unacceptable.”
