Fresh off a four-game win streak, the Boston Celtics laid an egg Thursday night, losing to the Miami Heat 115-99. Even worse, the Celtics had more drama, as Marcus Morris was seen pushing Jaylen Brown during a timeout.
It's been no secret that the Celtics haven't been without their fair share of drama this season, and to say it's been unexpected would be an understatement.
Stephen A. Smith voiced his displeasure with the team on Friday's First Take.
"If you're the Boston Celtics and still here we are halfway through the season literally 41 games into it, the Celtics are 25-16," continued Smith. "To find yourself in a situation where you continue to be rollercoaster where players are shoving one another, these are the kinds of things concerning me because I didn't expect to see this from a Brad Stevens team who we talked about last year as being the best young coach in basketball."
Prior to Thursday's dud, the Celtics were 15-5 in their previous 20 games.
