Pavlovic a familiar name to C's
While Celtics coach Doc Rivers didn't reference the game specifically on Thursday, he did note that he had been playfully chiding Paul Pierce and Ray Allen about a couple good games Pavlovic produced against Boston in recent seasons.
"[Pavlovic] was pretty good," said Rivers. "He didn't play consistent minutes [with Cleveland], he was in and out, but he had two games against us -- one was a game at Garden, where they went [isolation] with him offensively and, basically, he kicked our butts. I reminded Paul and Ray of that quite a bit over the last couple days. What I've always liked about him is whether he was playing a minute or five minutes, defensively, you could see they trusted [him]. He could guard anybody and he didn’t care who you were. Maybe they didn’t understand him, who knows. I like that."
