The Celtics vs. Cavs series is tied at 1-1, but there has been a huge discrepancy when it comes to fouls called.
Through two games of this series the Celtics have been called for 56 fouls to the Cavaliers 33 and they have shot 39 free throws compared to 69 for the Cavs.
As much as Boston coach Doc Rivers would like to voice his opinion on the free throw discrepancy, he bit his tongue when asked about it after today's practice.
"We're going to play the way we play and we're not going to change the way we play," Rivers told a large group of reporters. "We have to do a better job of doing it without fouling. And we have to do a better job, somehow, of drawing some fouls on them."
When pressed further about the subject, Rivers said, "We have to be more aggressive offensively. We have to attack more. It is something we want. As well as we've played, the low free throw attempts for us, we have to get to that line more."
Rivers was careful not to say anything bad about the referees, as the NBA has cracked down on coaches and players who criticize game officials, fining them as punishment.
Cleveland went more than 19 minutes without getting whistled for a personal foul in Game 2.
When asked if he had ever seen a team go that long without getting called for a foul, Rivers simply said: "Nope."
