Foul Trouble for the Celtics. More Bad NBA Officiating?

This guest post was made by the SeatCrunch team.
The Boston Celtics were hit with five technical fouls in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, where they are playing the Miami Heat. Head Coach Doc Rivers sounded off about the T he received.
“I know mine wasn’t [deserved]. I can tell you that much. I don’t know how long I’ve been in the league but that has to rank as the worst I’ve ever had. I would have loved to earn it.”
If what Rivers says is true, and he was T’d up for saying “C’mon Eddie” to one of the officials, then the above comment is warranted. It was his closing statement calling out the refs that may yield some consequences.
“Everybody has to keep their composure. Not just the players and the coaches.”
Hopefully the Celtics will stay out of trouble for the rest of the series.
