. Head coach Doc Rivers mentioned he'd like his team to play at a slightly faster pace heading into last night's game against Detroit. That resulted in 44% shooting, Rajon Rondo taking 27 shots (35 points) and 88 points. Kevin Garnett (hip) is expected back in the lineup for tonight's game at Chicago.
"Offensively I didn't really like the way we played the whole night, really," Rivers said. "Wasn't a lot of movement. I like Rondo being aggressive, but on the other hand we didn't get a lot of ball movement. This wasn't lost on offense. Defensively you give up 98 points to a team that's struggling right now scoring."
"It's difficult. When you have it going yourself, my teammates kept telling me stay aggressive," he said. "But at the same time I was just trying to get other guys involved. You know, when they're not missing, they have to come back and tell me to still attack and stay aggressive."
