Doc Rivers is done fighting the battle of words with Ray Allen. Chris Forsberg reports that the Celtics coach said, "'We're going to just let Ray keep talking... It's easier'" when interviewed earlier today. Doc is focused on creating a game plan to take down Miami, and I'm sure he just wants to get the distractions out of the way. Ray recently made headlines when he claimed that he and Rondo were almost traded to the Suns for Amare, Barbosa(got him anyway!) , and a 1st-round pick in 2009. "Asked about the potential Phoenix deal, Rivers said on Wednesday, 'I didn't even know it, so I'm surprised right now. I never knew that. I don't think that's true.'"
Rajon Rondo continues to stay out of the "#20" talk: "I don't know what happened or hear anything," Rondo said. "I just stay focused and hit the gym. I didn't read any papers or see anything on the news about No. 20." I know it's paradoxical to say let's move on even though I'm reposting it, but I'm glad to see our guys aren't getting caught up in the mud-toss. We'll let our play do the talking this Tuesday in Miami... Jacob Zweiback 10/24/2012 09:10:00 PM Tweet
