Doc Rivers: Officials did ‘horrendous’ job

NEW YORK — Doc Rivers was furious, livid, outraged at the officiating in the Celtics’ 87-71 loss to the Knicks Tuesday night in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series.

Specifically, Rivers was angry at the foul calls against Kevin Garnett, who scored 12 points and grabbed 11 rebounds but was saddled with foul trouble from the start. He picked up two fouls in the first quarter and ended up playing 24 minutes.
