Doc Rivers needs to understand that his team gets away with a lot of crap during games. Such as these little elbows and pushes his players throw in while refs aren't looking. Their illegal moving screens. etc.

Phil Jackson gave his opinion about the fine:

Before the game, Jackson was told Celtics coach Doc Rivers was fined $15,000 by the NBA for complaining about the officiating following Boston's overtime loss to the Lakers on Thursday night. "Is that all?" Jackson said. "It should have been more. That's Boston."

I thought the Celtics had the officials in their pockets in this one, until Rondo pushed Kobe, and then Garnett went nose to nose with LO.

It's if the officials got tired of the Celtics antics as well, and start evening out the calls a bit.
