Celtics, Doc Rivers Run Heat's Offense In NBA All-Star Practice

About midway through the first quarter, Doc Rivers, coach of the East team in the 2011 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, put the four Boston Celtics in the game at the same time, subbing in Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen (to play with Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard). That wasn't the only time the four Boston players were together.

Courtside reporter Craig Sager revealed that during practice on Sunday, Rivers had his Celtics run some of the rival Miami Heat's favorite sets in another bit of gamesmanship to show that his team knew the Heat front and back after three wins this regular season.
