“Doc (Rivers) came in and just wanted to tell guys what was wrong,” said Pierce, “and it just seemed like we were looking at one another and it was just like, you know, we’ve got to be able to accept coaching. Doc’s telling them what’s wrong, and, you know, guys are getting mad at him. And I’m like, this ain’t it. Don’t get mad at Doc. He’s coaching. We’ve got to get mad at this other team. It was needed.

“We had to bring the fight to them,” the captain said. “I think we were kind of bickering at each other a little bit too much, figuring out what kind of defense we run. That was a little bit too much for me. I just had to say, you know, ‘We’re fighting against one another. It’s against the team out there on the court. And once we realize that, we can play some ball.’

“And we stepped up that third quarter and played the type of ball that we know we can play.”

Paul hit some good points, and this team has too much talent, and they shouldn't squander that because of fighting with each other. The fight should be against the opposing team. It's a great turnaround, and they showed what they can be, and they should some key toughness. We all hope the Celtics can bottle this passion. If the Celtics can beat the Knicks. It would mean the Celtics would have won three games against three top teams in the East.

I don't know.. I don't like it when certain things come out of the locker room.. I think that the fact that the guys were mad at Doc and were bickering at each other should have stayed behind the door closed of the locker room..
I believe that Garnett or Dooling did something like that many times without saying anything to the media..

@ Morena I agree with you,and shows maybe that some were right about the guys tunning Doc out.
