07:56 AM ET 01.16 | It had to happen sometime. Doc Rivers has known for years this night was coming, yet he is remarkably unprepared to coach against his son [Wednesday night] at the Garden. When rookie Austin Rivers gets into the game for the New Orleans Hornets, Doc's innards will be tugged in different directions. Suffice to say he's not looking forward to this particular Celtics game. "I'm actually not," said Rivers, whose club will take a six-game win streak onto the parquet. "I still don't know how to feel about it. ... I'll be glad when the game's over. I can put it that way." If Doc is worried about his players taking it easy on their boss' progeny, he shouldn't be. I don't care if he's Doc's kid," Jeff Green said. "Is he going to get mad at me?"

I see it as a huge challenge for both men, and if it were me - I would really enjoy it.

The C's should be happy to see that kid enter the game....hell he is not doing anything anyway. As we use to say on the playgrounds he is a "Self Check"
