BOSTON (AP) — Celtics coach Brad Stevens says he is aware of video that appears to show guard Marcus Smart making an obscene gesture toward the crowd during Boston’s Game 2 loss to the Chicago Bulls.
The video appears to show Smart giving someone the middle finger after missing a 3-pointer in the fourth quarter of Tuesday night’s game.
Stevens said during a conference call Wednesday that he couldn’t tell exactly what Smart was doing in the video he had seen, but added that “if he made a gesture, it’s inappropriate” and that it would be handled by the league.
Smart played 27 minutes in the 111-97 loss, finishing with 13 points, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks.
The Bulls lead the series 2-0. Game 3 is Friday in Chicago.
