Last night was definitely a night to remember for Los Angeles Clippers coach, Doc Rivers as he returned to Boston to face his old team. The Boston Celtics will always have a great respect for Doc because he helped revive the team that was struggling and turned it around with 2 NBA finals appearances. One appearance resulted in an NBA championship. Doc returned to a standing ovation and a tribute video from the team.
The Boston fans definitely loved Doc and Doc has a lot of respect for the city of Boston but when the game started it was all business. The Clippers won 96-88 behind 22 points and 9 assists from Chris Paul and 21 points and 3 assists from Jamal Crawford. Check out the highlights down below.
Doc will have another reunion tonight in Brooklyn as he faces the Nets who are now home to former Celtics Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. The NBA definitely set these reunions up very well.

Most of us know the horrible injury that happened to Louisville guard, Kevin Ware during last years Elite 8 game against Duke. For those who don’t know, Kevin was contesting a three point shot against Duke’s Tyler Thornton when he landed awkwardly, breaking his leg. One of the worst basketball injuries to date. But Wednesday night he entered the game against Pikeville to a standing ovation and thanked them with a three pointer! Great to see him back on the court and hopefully can lead the Cardinals to another NCAA Title!
