Rivers upset with officiating

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."

Gronk: 'Can't wait to compete again and play ball'

Gronk: 'Can't wait to compete again and play ball'

Rob Gronkowski's been having more than his share of fun this offseason, based off what we've seen on social media, but he sent out a Tweet Sunday night that makes it sound as if he can't wait for training camp to begin.

Gronkowski played in only eight games in 2016 because of back issues that eventually required surgery, and missed all of the Patriots' run to the Super Bowl championship.

Of course, if you check Gronk's timeline beneath his 'I-can't-wait-to-start-playing-again' Tweet, you'll find a) a couple of hypes for his new show MVP, b) a re-Tweet in which he's helping Mojo Rawley get ready for Wrestlemania, and c) quasi-ads for the various products he endorses.
