“We just let go of the rope and they piled on us,” coach Kevin McHale said. “We got rattled in that third quarter. Our team defense went to hell.”

Coach Doc Rivers was so happy about the performance of his son Austin Rivers, who scored 25 points in a 10 of 13 shooting from the field. Austin Rivers played well to limit the playing time of Chris Paul, who needed to be rested.

“Austin was unbelievable,” said Paul, who had 12 points and a team-high seven assists in his first game since hitting the winning bucket in Game 7 against San Antonio last weekend. “I was probably his biggest cheerleader in the third quarter. I just kept saying, ‘I don’t want to play anymore if I don’t have to.'”
