Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson combine for three technicals and two ejections after the officials, as Steve Kerr says, “blatantly miss a couple calls in a row.” The game was already out of hand, but it got especially out of hand after Ray Allen completed the extremely rare six-point play.
Keep watching until the end for some Taj Gibson lip-reading fun - I think he says “Forget you, melon farmer!”
Derrick’s a brother. And to see him go through this is tough, but at the end of the day it’s really funny how quick people are to judge. But people don’t know what it’s like to lead a team, especially after you tore your ACL. If you tore your ACL and you have to be the starting point guard and have the expectations that Derrick has, then maybe you can judge, but everybody who hasn’t been in that situation before should really shut up because I feel like it’s just so unfair to him and to this team. We’re fighting, and everybody’s going to just s—- on somebody who’s been giving so much to this organization. It’s crazy to me.
