Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka addressed some of the concerns he had about his team as they are eliminated in Game 6 of the NBA Finals by the Golden State Warriors.
Udoka received a technical foul in the Game 5 loss to the Warriors and could have received another when he and Tony Brothers got into an argument when the cameras went off. The first-year head coach said the team went a little overboard with the complaints.

“I think we complain too much at times throughout the game,” he said of The Athletic. “The late game might not be any different than the first quarter, second quarter or third quarter. Something we have to hide and be better overall.”
This is what the Celtics coach spoke about immediately after the Game 5 loss. Udoka said he was told he received the technical information because he “pointed” at Brothers.

Celtics forward Al Horford admitted after the defeat that the team let the referee get to them.
“As you know, I feel like we were able to fend off those things, especially during the playoffs. For some reason tonight I feel like we got it,” Horford said via Boston.com.
“It’s one of those things that we kind of brought back. We were able to focus on that again, but we can never let that get to us. We can’t let this affect our game, the way things are played. We feel like we can control a lot of these things. It’s something we move on from and need to be better on Thursday.
