Doc Rivers was a man of many emotions on Wednesday night, coaching against his son Austin for the first time.
With the Hornets beating the Celtics — snapping Boston’s six-game winning streak in the process — the elder Rivers was caught in a conundrum. Should he be happy that his son had played well? Or, did he have to be upset with the end result for his team?
Luckily, Doc won’t have to wrestle with his feelings again for a while and can go back to rooting for his son until March 20, when the Celtics travel to face the Hornets in New Orleans.
