Spurs 103, Celtics 88

Celtics left in a foul mood after loss to Spurs

SAN ANTONIO — Doc Rivers chose to focus his anger on the officiating Saturday night at AT&T Center. At one point in the third quarter, the Celtics had been whistled for 10 more fouls than the Spurs, so he had reason to be irritated.

But the real source of his ire was his team, as the Celtics once again showed up with their “B” game against a formidable opponent and once again were embarrassed defensively. The Celtics tried running with the superior Spurs for about 30 minutes, but every one of their turnovers seemingly resulted in San Antonio points, while the Celtics again forgot to defend the 3-point line.
