The best part is the Utah’s announcers’ reaction.
And this is why Blake needs to tone it down on the power dunks 24/7. One of these days some bench warmer is going to make a name for himself ending Blake’s career.

The second technical was complete BS. The first one, though, that alone could’ve tossed him out of the game. How does that differ from what Zaza did:
Pierce lost his cool and was looking for an ejection. Sure, he got thrown out on a dubious call, but he was being a punk at the end of the game. Never should have lost his cool. Ray Allen was doing his best to keep the Celts in it – and doing a damn good job of it.

Scroll forward to about the :35 mark and turn your speakers up.
Boston’s playoff stock: falling FAST.
He was promptly suspended by the Association.
