Rivers stumps, but can't vote for Pagliuca

BOSTON -- Celtics coach Doc Rivers admitted he campaigned for Steve Pagliuca's Senate run, but couldn't vote in Tuesday's primary because he's not registered in Massachusetts.

"No, I vote in Florida," Rivers told reporters before Tuesday's game against the Bucks. "I'm off the hook. I did do some campaigning. I hope [Pagliuca] does well. I don't know what the results [will be], but I did [campaign]. I don't know if anyone listened to me, but if they did, good."

Pagliuca, a co-owner and managing partner of the Celtics, was one of four Democrats running for the seat vacated after the death of Edward Kennedy. Early returns had Pagliuca running well behind the lead.
