[Anderson] Varejao’s energy is just amazing. It’s amazing to watch him run around relentlessly, and pursue [loose] balls…Varejao’s always an All-Star as far as I’m concerned. I think they should keep a spot for a role player. That’s what he does, he plays his role…He had 20 points and they didn’t run one [offensive] set for him…Down the stretch, he and Kyrie [Irving] were tough for us to handle.
– Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers on Anderson Varejao following the Celtics’ 93-90 win over the Cavaliers. Varejao amassed his first career 20/20 game, including 10 offensive rebounds.
