BOSTON (AP) - Austin Rivers had no doubt about whom his mother was rooting for when his New Orleans Hornets faced his father's team, the Boston Celtics.
The younger Rivers says with a smile that mom would be cheering him on because ``she loves me more than him.''
Rivers says he's been looking forward for the chance to face the Celtics. That's not just because his father's the coach, but also because he grew up hanging around the team and shooting around with longtime Celtics like Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.
Rivers was the 10th overall pick in last summer's NBA draft. Doc Rivers says he's not looking forward to coaching against the Hornets and trying to stop his son.
