Jordan Crawford over Courtney Lee… justified or not?

One of the questions I was most asked during Game 2 was some variation of “why is Doc going with Jordan Crawford over Courtney Lee?”  Here’s Doc’s reasoning:  Rivers was asked Wednesday about his preference of Crawford over Lee, and he said he simply thinks Crawford is playing better than Lee right now. “Yeah, it’s [...]

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

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 [...]
