Doc Rivers passed KC Jones to become the third winningest coach in franchise history with the win last night over the Sacramento Kings. Doc’s 308 Celtic victories puts him behind Tommy Heinsohn (427) and Red Auerbach (795) on the all time list.
On speaking of his achievment, Doc was his usual humble self. Said Doc “I just don’t know what that means yet, because I’m not thinking about it much. I’m not done. But it’s nice, and listen — it’s Danny Ainge at the end of the day. I’m full aware of that. We were bad for two years and he stuck with me. And believed in me. At the end of the day, it’s Danny Ainge more than me.”
