ANIMATED: Doc Rivers Given A Technical Foul In Game 1

The Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat are tied 46-46 at halftime of Game 1 of the 2012 NBA Eastern Conference Finals. The Celtics made a nice comeback in the second quarter after an awful first quarter to knot the game up. Unfortunately, the referees haven't done them many favors.

Boston was given three technical fouls in the first half. Doc Rivers was T'd up late in the second quarter for apparently saying "come on Eddie" to referee Ed Malloy. As you can imagine he was not pleased. Click the jump for the many faces of an unhappy man.

Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen were given the other two technicals on plays that were questionable at best. Such is life on the road with NBA officials.
