by Boston in a playoff game since May 30, 1988 when they limited the Pistons to 10 points over the final 12 minutes in a 79-78 win in
Game Four of the Eastern Conference Finals in Detroit.

Glenn “Doc” Rivers is entering his sixth season as Head Coach of the Boston Celtics. He was named to the position on April 29,
2004, becoming the 16th Head Coach in franchise history.
In his first season as Head Coach of the Boston Celtics Rivers led the club to a 45-37 (.549) record as well as the teams first
Atlantic Division title since the 1991-92 season.
Rivers guided the 2007-08 Celtics to their 17th NBA championship behind an NBA-best 66-16 regular season record which also was
his best coaching record in a single season. During the course of the 2007-08 season he was named NBA Coach of the Month three
times. He is the only Celtics coach since the award’s inception during the 1982-83 season to win the award three times. He joins
K.C. Jones, Jimmy Rodgers and Chris Ford as the only Celtics Head Coach’s to have won the award.
Rivers is only the fourth coach in franchise history to have earned the NBA Coach of the Year Award, joining Tom Heinsohn
(1972-73), Bill Fitch (who won it with Cleveland (1975-76) and Boston (1979-80)) and Red Auerbach (1964-65) for whom the
trophy is named.
In Rivers’ second season with Boston he led the Celtics to a record of 33-49. The Celtics finished 3rd in the Atlantic division, 16
games behind division winner New Jersey.
The 42-year old Rivers spent four plus seasons as the Head Coach of the Orlando Magic. In his first year at the helm in Orlando he
led a team predicted by most to finish near or at the bottom of the league that included four starters who were not drafted. Rivers
guided the team to a 41-41 record, and for his efforts, Rivers was named the 1999-2000 NBA Coach-of-the-Year.
Rivers served as an analyst, paired with Al Michaels, for ABC Sports coverage of the NBA during the 2003-04 season, following
his release from the Magic on November 17, 2003. Overall he compiled a 171-168 record (.506) in his four-plus seasons as
Orlando's Head Coach, advancing the team to the playoffs three times.
Rivers played 13 seasons in the NBA for the Atlanta Hawks (1983-84 to 1990-91), Los Angeles Clippers (1991-92), New York
Knicks (1992-93 to 1993-94) and San Antonio Spurs (1994 to 1995-96). He played for three of the game's top coaches in Pat Riley,
Larry Brown and Mike Fratello, and holds career averages of 10.9 points, 5.7 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game. His teams
advanced to the NBA Playoffs 10 times, where he averaged 11.4 points, 5.9 assists and 3.3 rebounds. Rivers saw action in 864
regular season games and 81 playoff games over the course of his career.
Rivers averaged a double-double in 1986-87 (12.8 ppg., 10.0 apg.) and was selected to play in the 1988 NBA All-Star Game. He
averaged a career-best 15.2 points per game in 1990-91. He scored a career-high 37 points against Seattle on February 4, 1988. He
also shares an NBA single-game playoff record for most assists in one half (15 vs. Boston, May 16, 1988).
Drafted after his junior season out of Marquette by the Atlanta Hawks in the second round (31st overall) of the 1983 NBA Draft, he
played the first eight years of his career with Atlanta, setting the Hawks' single-season assists record with 823 in 1986-87, and
ending his stint with the team as the franchises all-time assist leader with 3,866.
