Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett were both ejected and the Suns handed the Celtics an 88-71 loss Friday night. Rivers was thrown out in the first half, while Garnett got the gate late in the fourth quarter, helping extend the Celtics' run of futility in back-to-back games. The ejections capped off what was their worst performance of the season as the Celtics shot just 35 percent and set season lows for points.
Things got heated late in the fourth quarter after the Celtics made their final run to get within 11 points. Garnett stepped into Channing Frye on a 3-point shot attempt and hit him in the groin. Frye took exception and got in his face. The players had to be separated and after the officals consulted for a few minutes, they assigned Garnett two technical fouls and ejected him. There was nothing good about this game for the Celtics, who also lost Glen Davis to a hamstring injury at halftime.
