Doc Rivers was on WEEI this morning, and he had some pretty glowing things to say about Nate Robinson:
"Nate is a guy who has the chance to be a one-game sensation," Rivers said "He's going to win a playoff game for us."
And he added that he loves the team's chances.
"Listen, this is the same team that was 25-5. And I don't lose sight of that. I'll let everybody else loses sight of that, but I haven't. I know we can reach back to that level. … Everyone forgets conveniently, the stretch that we struggled in, we were not right. We were not the same team. Now we're healthy. We've added pieces. Nate [Robinson] is going to help us. Mike Finley is going to help us. Like I told our team, we're not going to defend ourselves. we're just going to go out and play. We have to prove that. As a group, I can tell you, our team belives that."
That's a lot of confidence in the team and the new guys. The team is finally starting to blow out the bad teams like they're supposed to. Are they turning that corner? Maybe we should wait to see how they do against the Rockets, Mavs, Jazz and Nuggets before we answer that question.
