Flip Flopping Crazy: Doc is in a foul mood about Game 2 officiating

Let’s be clear about this right off the top: By no means am I citing the officiating as the main reason as to why the Celtics lost Game 2 to the Knicks. Did it hurt the game plan when KG got into early foul trouble in the first and second quarters?  Without a doubt. But [...]
