NEW YORK -- Although Doc Rivers didn't point to any specific individual or group, there was little doubt he was upset after the game with some aspects of how the Celtics' 106-104 loss to the Knicks Sunday was officiated by Joey Crawford and crew.
There were a total of six technical fouls called, including one against Sasha Pavlovic and another against Jermaine O'Neal in the fourth quarter.
"Fourth-quarter technicals on our team are not allowed," Rivers said. "Having said that, the game has to be about the players. I mean, come on! That's . . . I thought both teams were complaining just the same. And we got two techs (in the fourth quarter, three for the game). The game's got to be about the players on the floor; that's it."
