Report: Doc could leave Celtics after season

Sources have told the Boston Herald that Celtics coach Doc Rivers is leaning toward not coming back next season. 

 

"Part of it is true," Rivers told the Herald on Tuesday. "Every year I sit down in the middle of the summer and I have a family discussion. We talk about what we want to do. That's nothing new, but every year it gets stronger and stronger. And I think people are making common sense reads. I've got three seniors next year, two in college and one in high school. That's important to me."

 

Rivers' son, Jeremiah, plays on Indiana University's basketball team. His other son, Austin, will be a high school senior and is acknowledged as one of the top prep basketball players in the country. Rivers' daughter, Callie, is a volleyball standout at the University of Florida.

C's loss locks up fourth spot in East

The Celtics wanted to win heading into the playoffs; the Bulls needed to win to make the playoffs. On Tuesday, the Bulls beat the Celtics, 101-93, in Chicago.

 

Derrick Rose scored a career-high 39 points (15-22 FG) while Kirk Hinrich added another 30 (4-7 3PG) to lead the home team. Paul Pierce and Ray Allen combined for 53 points for the Celtics. The C's will wrap up the regular season at home on Wednesday against the Bucks.

 

The loss guaranteed that the Atlanta Hawks would finish with a better record than the Celtics. Boston, which has now lost six of nine games, will be the No. 4 spot in the East.

Bonser: Shoulder 'feels like crap'

Red Sox pitcher Boof Bonser got shelled in his second rehab outing for Triple-A Pawtucket, allowing nine runs in two innings. He allowed five hits (including a homer), three walks and hit a batter, throwing just 22 of his 47 pitches for strikes.

 

After the performance, Bonser told reporters that he experienced shoulder stiffness that worsened both by virtue of cool weather and a long top of bottom of the first inning by his team.

 

"The thing seized up on me and all heck broke loose," Bonser told reporters. "When you only go two innings and your shoulder feels like crap, especially coming off surgery, it’s not a great day. Put it that way."

 

Bonser missed all of the 2009 season while recovering from surgery on his labrum and rotator cuff.
