Ainge season wrap-up: Keeping Crowder, IT on the bench, Sully and more…

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics are prepared to overpay a second-tier free agent?

Undeniable proof the refs are favoring the Cavaliers

Undeniable proof the refs are favoring the Cavaliers

Kendrick Perkins was assessed a flagrant one for this cheap shot and a double technical foul given to both Crowder and Perkins. Apparently, the officials didn’t like the way Crowder responded to taking TWO shots to the face. If Perk pulled this stunt back in 2010, he would have been ejected and suspended. But when [...]
