Evan Turner had some strong words for the referees Tuesday after the Boston Celtics’ Game 2 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Turner, who’s know for his candidness in postgame interviews, said his beef with the zebras after Boston’s 99-91 loss centered around one call made late in the fourth quarter. With just under four minutes remaining and the Celtics trailing by five, guard Avery Bradley was whistled for a shooting foul on Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving. The foul, which came as the shot clock expired, change the course of the game. Irving sank both of his free throws, and Cleveland never trailed by fewer than six points the rest of the way. “Avery is a known defender,” Turner told reporters after the game. “So, they called a foul right there, and they called a foul on the guys behind the backboard. In that type of possession, that should never be called.
