Greivis Vasquez scored 15 points with 11 rebounds and Austin Rivers won his first NBA game against his father on Wednesday night as the New Orleans Hornets beat coach Doc Rivers and the Boston Celtics 90-78.
The Hornets rookie played 22 minutes and scored 8 points, the most since he scored 11 against Toronto in late December.
Rivers told the Times-Picayune he went into the game with the attitude, "I'm playing against a team that I know, I'm going against my father, lets have fun and compete."
The experience wasn't quite as enjoyable for his father.
Doc Rivers said after the game it was strange to see his son on the floor, and as a father, "I didn't enjoy it, honestly."
Al-Farouq Aminu had 18 points and nine rebounds and Anthony Davis had 10 of each for New Orleans, which won for the sixth time in seven games.
The Hornets won without Eric Gordon who did not play due to soreness in his right knee.
Coach Monty Williams said "Overall, I thought it was a great team win."
Paul Pierce scored 12 points with 10 rebounds before fouling out in the final minutes. He shot 5 for 16 from the floor and made one of seven 3-point attempts as Boston went 4 for 18 from beyond the arc. Kevin Garnett scored 15 and Rajon Rondo had 11 assists.
