Glen Davis just got pulled out of game and said someting to Doc, who yelled at Baby, “Sit your xx down.”

Doc Rivers just told team security to take Glen Davis to locker room. Rivers clearly not happy with Davis.

Assistant coach Alvin Gentry had went to talk to Davis, but apparently Rivers didn’t care. Davis back in locker rooom
Doc Rivers commented on the situation per ESPN...
quote:

"Nothing went on with me," Rivers said after the game. "I thought Baby was just too emotional, and for me, if you're too emotional I always send you back to the locker room and keep you back there until the next game. I love Baby. I just didn't think emotionally he was ready to play tonight, so we told him to go to the locker room."

"No, we're not going to get into the whole Baby thing; this has not been building," Rivers said. "He was emotional tonight, and we told him to go sit down. I just thought he was a distraction, and when guys are a distraction, I don't think they should be on the bench. If you're a distraction for anybody on the bench that should be paying attention to the game, then go sit in the back so our guys can watch the game."
