The defending champs were 42--11 at week's end
Dan Patrick: How often do you consult Terry Francona and Bill Belichick?
Doc Rivers: A lot. I talk to Terry more. They're great sounding boards, having gone through anything a coach can go through. We have a pretty good fraternity here.
DP: When is Stephon Marbury suiting up for you guys?
DR: I haven't asked [ G.M. Danny Ainge] about that in over a week. I don't know if that's going to happen.
DP: Is this Danny's call?
DR: Danny wouldn't do it without me. We've talked about it a lot, because I'm a big believer in the locker room, like Belichick.
DP: Do you look at how he handled Randy Moss when you think about how you might have to handle Marbury?
