Celtics get tossed in wild loss to Suns

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.

Rivers tossed in first half

Celtics coach Doc Rivers didn't make it to halftime Friday night as he was thrown out with four minutes and 33 seconds left in the second quarter by referee Steve Javie. Rivers picked up one technical and then got hit with his second after clapping at the official. Javie, who is known for his quick trigger, immediately threw him out. Rivers could be seen saying, "It's not about you."

 

The Celtics were playing poorly and trailing 40-25 when Rivers got his first technical. This is Rivers' first ejection of the season. He was thrown out of one game last season.
