R.I.P. Grady Rivers

We've been known to say some less than nice things about the coach of the Boston Celtics around these parts, but on a more somber note, our heartfelt sympathies go out to Doc Rivers for the loss of his father, Grady Alexander Rivers, Sr. The specifics of Mr. Rivers' passing aren't known, but he was 76 and died in Chicago, Coach Rivers' hometown. In any event, while we'll be back to referring to him as Glenn soon enough, our condolences are with him and his family.

Someone might be planning to post more on this later, but the C's beat the Raptors in OT today, 98-95. Ray Allen was the hero of the day, hitting the game-winning 3 and scoring 33 points altogether. Pierce had a rough day, shooting 4-17 and ending up with just 13 points, but KG went for 23 and 13 and James Posey chipped in 11 off the bench. Rondo had a rough game, failing to make a field goal and picking up 5 fouls in 27 minutes. But hey, 2-0 is 2-0. We've got the Nuggets on Wednesday and the big bad Atlanta Hawks on Friday.

that was a slug 'em out affair today, ugly game all around. it was also the first close game of the year, and it was pretty fascinating to see who got the ball down the stretch. pp played poorly, but allen bailed everybody out throughout the game with his nonpareil stroke. the c's can be a hand full with three closers in the final minutes, that much seems certain. nice to have both the pats and c's both undefeated on november 4th. when i return i doubt that'll be the case...

Good defense by the Atlanta Hawks drama boys, if only we could patch up the difference, this will be a Atlanta good season. They are running, switching in defense, rebounding see those efforts. We don't have yet the Hawks team down.
