After a lot of back and forth, the Los Angeles Clippers and Boston Celtics seem to have reached a deal for head coach Doc Rivers.

There is just one more game left in the first round of the playoffs after Friday night's NBA Playoff action.
The NBA playoffs are underway, and it looks like it could be a long first round for a couple of series.
It came down to the last day of the regular season, but the 2013 NBA playoff picture is now crystal clear.
The Miami Heat raised their championship banner and opened the season with a big win over the Boston Celtics.
The NBA starts its regular season on Tuesday, and there are two games that deserve your attention.
One of the most heated rivalries in the NBA over the past two seasons will open the 2012-2013 NBA season.
And then there were two...
LeBron James probably won't have any detractors after his performance in Game 6.
The Heat is on in South Beach.
Home is where the heart is... and the wins.
It wasn't a pretty win, but then again, it was for the Heat in Game 2.
Many wondered whether LeBron James and Dwyane Wade could continue their torrid pace to the NBA Finals. Well...
It had to be someone, so it might as well be the boys in Celtic green.
It started with Allen Iverson and ended with a Game 6 win for the Sixers.
The Thunder make two for the Western Conference finals, while the Celtics hammer the Sixers for the series lead.
Well, the teams from Los Angeles won't get swept out of the playoffs, after all.
The Celtics won in convincing fashion. The Thunder... well, they just beat a weary Lakers team.
Monday night was about polar opposites in the NBA playoffs.
Los Angeles' first sons stepped up on Saturday night, and Boston opened the second round of the NBA playoffs in a fine fashion.
Two series ended on Thursday night, while one got a little more interesting.
The Indiana Pacers are moving on. The Bulls will live to see another day. The NBA playoffs continue on...
The NBA playoffs continued on Sunday. There is still only one team with its ticket to the second round punched.
Sure the playoffs were interesting before, but things got a lot more interesting on Friday night.
The best team in the NBA may be making a quick exit from the playoffs this year. Oh, and the Lakers look pretty good.
You know it's the NBA playoffs when teams start making ridiculous comebacks to take series leads. Well, the NBA playoffs are here, and Sunday ended on a high note.
The Boston Celtics staved a 3-0 deficit.
The Thunder crumbled down the stretch.
The Oklahoma City Thunder held a 16-point second half lead and a 13-point 4th quarter lead, but just as the Grizzlies have shown their ability to come back in big games, so too have the Thunder shown their immaturity when things get tight. Memphis went on a 15-4 run in the last five minutes of the game to force OT.
Los Angeles looked like they were headed for their third straight Finals appearance as of Game 3.
Miami looked like it was going to roll in the same direction.
Boston dominated New York in Games 3 and 4.
Sunday had a few hitches in it, though.
The Miami Heat took on the Philadelphia 76ers in the fourth game of the first round of the playoffs.
Madison Square Garden was supposed to be the refuge for the New York Knicks. It was supposed to supply them with that little extra something to help them beat the Celtics for the first time in the series.
It turned out that Boston was just as ready for the Garden atmosphere, as well. It was evident from the start.
The day started in Miami and ended in Boston for fans of the Celtics and Red Sox.
The Celtics looked to notch their fourth win against preseason favorites to go 82-0, the Miami Heat. But, it appears that Miami is a different team than the last three times the two teams met, winning 100-77. Or maybe it's that Boston is different - in a bad way.
With four or five more games left for more NBA teams in the 2010-2011 season, the playoff picture has become more clear.
Miami and Boston have already played twice this season, with the Heat losing both times to a Celtics team that appeared superior in every aspect of the game.
But, things are different in the third installment of this Eastern Conference showdown.
LeBron, Wade, Bosh and Co. appear to have gelled a little since the last time these two played.
