Marcus Smart was ejected after pushing Joel Embiid during the Boston Celtics 118-115 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.
“Obviously, I was frustrated, because it was a cheap shot. I didn’t see it coming. It caught me off guard. But, I mean, I really don’t want to talk about it. I don’t care,” said Embiid after the game.
The Celtics also lost Aron Baynes with a sprained ankle in the second quarter.
Brad Stevens said Baynes suffered a Grade 2 spain. He did not give a timetable for his return.
