Rivers Hopes Rondo Works on Self-Control
Doc Rivers, who said yesterday that he didn’t believe the infraction was worthy of a suspension, admitted Rondo has to work on his self-control.
“I hope so, and he will,” the coach said. “The thing Rondo understands is that he can’t allow himself to be taken out of the game. And he did last night. I don’t think he had any intentions when it started. He thought, ‘I’m going to stand up for my guy who just got his legs cut out from under him.’ It’s snap, it’s quick, and it can happen to any of us. And it has happened to me.”
