The Boston Celtics have three technical fouls in the first half of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat. Ray Allen picked up the first one for momentarily expressing frustration about a call. Kevin Garnett kinda sorta picked up the second one for a delay of game.
Then, Doc Rivers picked up the third one for shouting “C’mon Eddie” to Ed Maloy. His reaction was kind of perfect.
I’d love to have the power of incurring that kind of reaction simply for people shouting my name. But wait: it gets better. These Rivers faces come on the possession after the technical foul.
I can’t blame Maloy too much. It is a lot of fun to mess with people like this.
