"I didn’t mean to get him in the face like that," said Garnett. "I was actually trying to swipe the ball. They called it what it was. It was a physical game. That’s what it was: Part of the game."
"Honestly, there was so much crap going on at that point, I just think [referee James Capers] has been around the game a long time. And I think he was thinking, ‘I’m going to do Kevin a favor and get him out of there.’ Because it was getting chippy," said Rivers. "And I had Brandon [Bass] at the [scorer's] table anyway, because I could see that, too. And I really think sometimes that’s what officials do -- and you can’t blame them for it, if that’s what it was."
Come on Doc, stick up for your guy. KG was going for the ball, and the refs overreacted on the call. Doc you coached a good game, and you blew it when you opened your mouth. What if this was a close game?? Just because it was a 20 point lead at the time, it doesn't mean this bad call is accepted. Again good job coaching tonight's game. You subbed, and put together good combinations. But stick up for your guys.
