Doc Rivers delivered a great line during an interview that took place during Game 6 of the Eastern Conference first-round playoff series between his Milwaukee Bucks and the Indiana Pacers on Thursday.

The Pacers led the game at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Ind. 33-24 after the first quarter. Rivers was tasked with answering questions from TNT reporter Stephanie Ready.

For her second question, Ready asked Rivers if there were any minutes restrictions for Damian Lillard, who was playing through an Achilles tendon injury. She also asked what the Bucks’ strategy for Lillard was.

“I’m sure there is (a limitation), but I’m not going to tell you what they are,” Rivers said with a chuckle.

Yes, like a coach is going to reveal his strategy to the public while a game is going on. That wouldn’t be very smart, would it?

If there were restrictions for Lillard, they weren’t very visible as the veteran guard played a full amount of minutes in Game 6.
