Donaghy on D&C: Ref Davis has 'rabbit ears'

Former NBA referee Tim Donaghy joined Dennis & Callahan on Monday morning to talk about Rajon Rondo's ejection from Sunday's game by referee Marc Davis.

Donaghy, who served prison time for his role in a gambling scandal while he officiated games, said he has no doubt Rondo intentionally made contact with Davis, meaning Rondo is likely to be suspended by the league for Game 2.

"I don't think he has any wiggle-room at all," Donaghy said. "I think he definitely was making comments toward him, walked toward him, and I think he bumped him on purpose."

However, Donaghy had little positive to say about Davis.

"Definitely Marc Davis is one of those guys that has rabbit ears for certain people," Donaghy said. "He's a referee that thinks people pay for their tickets to come and see him. He's one of those guys that has a little bit of an ego. So, I'm sure it's not the first time that he's had a problem with...

Mashup: Giants' Umenyiora unhappy with GM

Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora is not happy with the way general manager Jerry Reese  has been handling negotiations for a contract extension, claiming that the GM is trying to make him look like a "greedy pig."

On Saturday, Reese insisted that Umenyiora has been offered a contract extension the past two seasons. Umenyiora, who last spring accused Reese of being a liar in a court affidavit, responded via an e-mail to the New York Daily News on Sunday, claiming that the latest offer wasn't close to teammate Mathias Kiwanuka's three-year, $21.75 million extension that included an $8.5 million signing bonus and $10.95 million in guaranteed money.

Wrote Umenyiora: Last year I was offered incentives. This year they offered me in guaranteed money, HALF of what they just gave Kiwi guaranteed. HALF. I’m not making that up. Then Jerry tells the world they offered me an extension and I turned it down. And I look like a...

Rondo: 'I didn't intentionally chest-bump him'

ATLANTA -- Rajon Rondo said that he didn't mean to bump referee Marc Davis and that his momentum carried him into the official Sunday night. The incident occurred with 41 seconds left in the Celtics' 83-74 loss to the Hawks after Davis called Brandon Bass for a foul. Rondo argued the call and got the first technical foul, then made contact with the official and was ejected.

"Obviously I was upset about the call," Rondo said. "I said some words to Marc. I deserved the first tech. As I was walking, I thought he stopped. My momentum carried me into him. I even think I tripped on his foot. I didn’t intentionally chest-bump him. But that’s what it appears to be."

This is how the rule is worded according to the NBA:

Any player or coach guilty of intentional physical contact with an official shall automatically be suspended without pay for one game. A fine and/or longer period of suspension will result if...

Doc 'would be surprised' if Rondo suspended

Despite replays showing Rajon Rondo clearly bumped official Marc Davis with 41 seconds remaining before getting ejected, Celtics coach Doc Rivers came to the defense of his star point guard after Sunday night's 83-74 loss to the Hawks in Game 1.

"He’s in the game, right?" Rivers answered when asked about Rondo's reaction to the foul call on Brandon Bass, who raked Josh Smith in the face on a loose ball scramble. "So, when you’re in the game, I didn’t know there’s a rule the guy only involved in the play is the only one who can argue the call. As a coach, I’m not in the play, either. I argue calls vehemently.

"They’re all 10 competitors. You’re standing right there, you see what you see, you have a right to argue just as much as anybody else. I think it’s great. I think it’s getting your guys’ back on your team."

But Rivers also conceded that there is a...

Pierce: 'For us to win, I have to play better'

Following a performance in which he made just 5-of-19 shots and finished with 12 points, Paul Pierce acknowledged his poor performance cost the Celtics in an 83-74 loss to the Hawks in Game 1 Sunday night in Atlanta. 

"I thought I had really good looks tonight," Pierce said. "For us to win I have to be a better player. That's just what it is. I have to knock down shots, I have to be aggressive on the offensive end. I have to guard Joe Johnson. I think I was a really big culprit of that tonight. Shots I got tonight, I'll take all of them. I missed a ton of them. I even missed a layup wide open at the end of the game. That was just an indication of the night I had."

Pierce said his sore big toe had no impact on his subpar night. He gave credit to the Atlanta defense. 

"We kind of eased into the game," Pierce said. "It's hard to tell. We establish ourselves defensively early, and we definitely...
