"Listen, I thought in the third and fourth quarter, the game got out of control," Celtics Coach Doc Rivers said. "And I thought the officials allowed it to get out of control. . . . I just thought it was a chippy game in the second half and it didn't need to be."

The point is that the Celt's always play this way, but now Doc is crying because the other team didn't back down. He wouldn't have said that if the Celts won the game.

How is it pointless. Didn't Doc build this team to be chippy? Don't the Celts always play like that? The push teams around all the time, but it is worth a thread if he starts crying when the other team is doing the same thing that he is teaching his team.

Maybe if they'd call your damn team for moving screens and shoving people in the back, it wouldn't get chippy. If you didn't know, Odom gave KG a butt pat and he had to ACT all big and bad and stand up to him with three guys there to keep Odom off of him. I guess you missed Rondo shove Kobe too. So tell me again, why did it get so chippy? You were happy with the officials in the first half because none of the Lakers got back in your punks faces. In the second half they did and now it's the refs fault. One last thing to point out the fact you're a moron. You were mad when they called Perkins for shoving Gasol in the back when he was really getting bad and now you're mad they didn't do anything. What a douche.

Doc isn't the Gm just to let you know, so he didn't build this team. I wouldn't really say he was "crying" about it, he gave his opinion on how the refs did. And they did suck. Again so what? What is your point? So you don't like what Doc said, but is it really thread worthy?

How exactly did the refs suck? I'm a neutral party and this is thread worthy. If you say the game got chippy and the Celtics play a physical style of ball themselves then it's kind of oxymoronic. Have you ever heard Jerry Sloan talk about a game getting "chippy"? No b/c he knows that's how his team plays and if another team brings it then all the better.

I thought the refs sucked because they were inconsistant. They were letting them play for a bit and then all of a sudden breathing on players was a foul. It went both ways. The C's play a physical game, but usually it isn't as physical as last night. Which is why I can see him saying what he did.

It isn't usually physical as last night because usually the other team doesn't push back, but last night the other team reacted.

The point is that Doc is a hypocrite. He wants to play physical but blames the ref when the opponents team is equally physical?

I did agree that the reffing was kinda F'd up. They would let them play physical then call a pansy foul, but it went both ways for each team. It was a great game and the Lakers just did this year what Boston did last year and that is sweep in the regular season. Now its all about if we see eachother in the finals. Best of luck to both teams....I think it would be an injustice to all NBA fans if these teams dont meet in the finals.

And the refs should of cleaned it up. Obviously it isn't going to get as chippy if one team rolls over so when the Lakers answered he wanted it to be cleaned up. The C's don't usually push guys and get in faces, sure it happens every once in a while but it happened more last night because the refs let it, that is all he is saying.

Funny how Laker fans like to say the C's have so many bandwagon fans when there is a big difference in numbers. But anyways I just think it is pointless to start a thread to complain about how you don't like Doc.

they suck. we know that. i been watching sports for 12 years. i got it by now.

chippy isnt physcial. chippy is pushing after the play is over. physical is playing rough in the paint.

idk, im the wrong guy to talk to if u want a rise out of me about the Celtics. last night was awesome. i wanted a different ending, but it was still fun. idc about refs. im just thrilled the Celtics are back and are title contenders.

last night was just another regular season, but a lot more fun.

refs blow. they just do. i dont think they are fixing games any more. i think they just suck at their job.

No question. Phil is a good coach, but has to be the most overrated coach ever. No coach has had more talent to work with then he has. 3 players that are probably in the top 5 ever. I definitely consider Red to be a much better coach then Phil, but lets not act like Red won championships with a bunch of scrubs...he had some pretty amazing talent as well.

Will you people actually watch a game and not be bias..the calls were bad for both teams but the Celtics got the shaft on some in critical moments. The refs let the Lakers do a lot of arm hacking and not the Celtics. If Paul Pierce would have let Rondo dribble the ball down the stretch ,the calls wouldn't have made a difference. C'mon Lakers fans,you do have a lot to be proud of. But I will say that the Lakers along with the Cav's,Magic and the Hornets are the NBA darlings.Maybe the Celtics can get a player like Brad Miller for a bag of jock straps,kind of like what the Lakers gave up for Gasol.
Sometimes I wonder if Vince McMahon from Wrestling is running the NBA.Because it is fixed GOOF !!!

Well it's no secret that I hate the Lakers and the Celtics, but I enjoy watching those guys play each other. I watched the majority of that game and I really didn't think that the refs were that bad. I have seen much worse from them this season. The NBA is by far the hardest sport to officiate, so I give them a few passes every game. I guess if I was rooting for one team or another, then I might have seen things differently, but last night just looked like a physical NBA game to me.

i actually thought alot of ticky tack fouls were called both ways.

Garnetts 6th foul was ridiculous, gasol got nailed in the head one time, and that didnt get called. There were SO many uncalled plays, and WAY to many ticky tack fouls called.
I dont think it was a well officated game at all. But thats not why boston lost. They turned the ball over too much and Paul missed a couple key ft's down the stretch. Nevermind the 4th qtr. and overtime last second plays that we ran, horrible.

u agree?

I disagree completely. There are 3 guys having to watch what 10 guys on the court and the guys on the bench are doing at all times. They are going to miss calls and make some questionable calls but that's part of the game. Human error.

The players don't make every stop, every shot, get every rebound, make a perfect pass every time and nobody *****es about that. Refs aren't going to get it right 100% of the time so just lay off of them and let them do their job. I'd love to see you or anybody else who *****es about the refs even come close to doing what those guys do, you'd be a laughing stock.

i actually thought alot of ticky tack fouls were called both ways.

Garnetts 6th foul was ridiculous, gasol got nailed in the head one time, and that didnt get called. There were SO many uncalled plays, and WAY to many ticky tack fouls called.
I dont think it was a well officated game at all. But thats not why boston lost. They turned the ball over too much and Paul missed a couple key ft's down the stretch. Nevermind the 4th qtr. and overtime last second plays that we ran, horrible.

Do you stand by playing Davis instead of Powe at the end of the 4th and OT? I would have also put House in instead of Rondo at some point of the OT because the Lakers were sagging off Rondo and letting him shoot, and with House they can't do that.

and another thing..why do like 3 of you lakers fans have the picture of kobe pointing his finger at rondo. He got *****ed by rondo, rondo pushed him and he points his finger lol.

Rondo didn't do anything. He looked like the school sissy trying to act tough. Kobe basically pointed at him while Ray Allen was making sure Rondo was okay and put his arms around him like a protective mother..., not even to hold him back, but it looked like they were snuggling standing up.

completely agree. Powe was having a great physical game down low. why put davis in? then davis got too confident in his jumper and that costed us. Same with house, great game..bring him in ..spread the floor.

The point is that the Celt's always play this way, but now Doc is crying because the other team didn't back down. He wouldn't have said that if the Celts won the game.

...And you would be complaining about it if your team lost the game.

02-06-2009, 03:27 PM
I thought the refs sucked because they were inconsistant. They were letting them play for a bit and then all of a sudden breathing on players was a foul. It went both ways. The C's play a physical game, but usually it isn't as physical as last night. Which is why I can see him saying what he did.

The Celtics had this game well in control untill they lost there cool. Lakers kept there cool and won the game. I think this game will be a good learning tool for this team.

Celtic style of ball? Not at all. The Celtics style is a game that isn't taken completely into control of the refs. Obviously the tensions were a little high this game, which is why I don't agree with Doc. The refs did do their best to control the game, they called an immense amount of fouls.

The only way they could control it is by starting to eject people. And that is simply not happening in a game of this magnitude.

No question. Phil is a good coach, but has to be the most overrated coach ever. No coach has had more talent to work with then he has. 3 players that are probably in the top 5 ever. I definitely consider Red to be a much better coach then Phil, but lets not act like Red won championships with a bunch of scrubs...he had some pretty amazing talent as well.

agreed. i think sometimes we as fans put waaayy too much into coaches and not enough on the players.

Bball coaches have a very limited affect on the game. they really dont win games as much as dont make the mistake that costs the games

So even if Jackson inherited great players, why didn't these great players win until Phil got there? Kobe and Shaq were together three years before PJ came in a three-peated. And what happened when Phil Jackson left the Lakers in 04? The Lakers missed the playoffs completely and it took Phil coming back and a couple years of work to get back to the finals. When red retired as head coach, the Celtics still won two out of the next three championships. Phil took teams with talent and built them into champions. Phil's a coach, not a GM. He didn't pick get to pick the players like red did. And when Phil "inherited" a mess, he built them into championship contenders. red was a great GM, but Phil is a great coach.

what? how did the refs lead to the blowouts? I don't see how a ref makes a difference in a box score like I have in my sig?:confused:

You know sometimes I look at a game and I will walk away and say wow, the whistle went our way tonight. It happened a couple of times in the conference playoffs last year. Then there are people like you that believe Boston is the team that gets screwed. lol. Sure game 6 got out of hand quickly, but realistic people would tell you that there were alot of momentum breaking calls (4 and 6 point swings) that went in your favor. That's what a team on a championship run needs. That's the game. Move to reality it's plenty of room.

I believe what he meant by Boston style is it was a physical game. There was pushing and shoving and both parties admitted to that. Good post, I initially saw the Steeler logo and Celtic post. Then a began to laugh as I realized a Boston/Steeler fan complaining about the refs is quite comical.

Doc should shut the **** up. Chippy play FAVORS the Celtics. The Celtics are dirty and chippy. They LITERALLY commit a type of foul every possession (a la Pistons of the late 80's). He should be careful for what he wishes for because, I guarantee, the Celtics do not win a championship and do not play nearly as good of defense if the refs don't let them play the way they like to play: dirty, chippy, and tough.

Having starts on your team doesnt matter theres alot else that needs to be done. For example, i know its a different sport, but in soccer theres a team in Spain that has like more than half of the best players on its team and somehow they cant win the title. You can have a bunch of superstars, but if they do not play efficient basketball you cant have a good team. On the other hand, I hate the lakers with all my heart, especially kobe, but i have to admit they are playing great basketball and deserve a championship...I just hope the cavs or the celtics can steal it from em:eyebrow:
