Doc Rivers unhappy with technical fouls called against the Boston Celtics

http://youtu.be/mXZTbRSXcEs

The Boston Celtics received five technical fouls Monday in their Game 1 loss to the Miami Heat, and coach Doc Rivers was not happy with the whistles against his team.

Rivers received one of the technicals for complaining about a call. He told CSNNE.com's A. Sherrod Blakely that his technical wasn't deserved.

"I know mine wasn't. 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."

The video above shows three of the technicals, against Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Rivers. The call against Garnett came for delay of game after he touched the ball after a made basket. Boston had already received a warning.

Rajon Rondo also received a technical, and the team received a technical for defensive three-seconds.

The names of two of the referees, Danny Crawford and Ed Malloy, trended on Twitter during the game.

"Everybody has to keep their composure," Rivers said. "Not just the players and the coaches."
