Doc Rivers Tears Up in Post Game Press Conference After His Los Angeles Clippers Beat the Boston Celtics

An emotional night hit its high when Doc Rivers teared up at the podium Wednesday night.

BOSTON – Doc Rivers got out of Boston with a victory Wednesday night, but not without tearing up. Rivers, who was visibly shaken when getting to the podium, took a long pause before answering his first question and teared up. Known for having a hoarse voice, Rivers' words trembled as he tried to hold in the waterworks.

After several emotionally heavy questions about Boston and the Celtics, Rivers finally said, "Can we talk about basketball?" But the mood and story was set, that the beloved former coach is a hero and legend in Boston.

Filmed and produced by Kyle George and Jared Weiss for CLNS Radio.
