Celtics disappointed in Marcus Smart following spat with Joel Embiid

Celtics disappointed in Marcus Smart following spat with Joel Embiid

Philadelphia 76ers All Star center Joel Embiid didn't mince words after Wednesday night's 118-115 victory against the Boston Celtics.

During the third quarter of the two team's matchup in Philadelphia, Embiid elbowed Smart on a chippy screen. Smart fell to the floor, jumped to his feet and pushed Embiid. But this is just a reminder of how important he is. Then, Marcus Smart was booted soon after, spending the majority of the second half in the locker room.

The 'Full Worm Supermoon' marks the start of spring this week
The March full moon is also known as a "full sap moon" - a reference to the time of year when sap starts to flow from maple trees. The last time a full moon occurred so close to the vernal, or, spring equinox was in March 2000, when they were four hours apart.

Rozier, however, poked fun at Philly for their reaction with the win and said that he "thought the confetti was going to drop" after the game. Embiid has played surprisingly passive against the Celtics over the years. "I think, as of late, I've been doing a good job of that". "It certainly helped us from a point-differential standpoint, because we were able to get to the free throw line and knock down a couple of free throws".

After a brief review, Smart was understandably given a flagrant-two foul and ejected from the game, while Embiid received a technical foul. "I just had to come out and show that I'm the most unstoppable player in the league".
