Clippers-Celtics Preview

(AP) -- Reaching the playoffs was almost always a foregone conclusion for Doc Rivers when he coached the Boston Celtics, and that has continued since he left for the Los Angeles Clippers.

Rivers' successor, Brad Stevens, is trying to make his own postseason plans for the Celtics, who continue their push Sunday against a playoff-bound Clippers squad seeking another easy win to cap a three-game trip.

Rivers had a successful nine-season stint with Boston (32-40), highlighted by his 2008 NBA title and 2010 conference championship among seven playoff appearances. The Clippers, finally proving themselves a legitimate franchise after years of being the league's laughingstock, have made the playoffs in both seasons under Rivers after clinching a berth with a 119-98 drubbing of Philadelphia on Friday night.
