It Was A Bad Night For Marcus Smart

With the Boston Celtics leading the Chicago Bulls 103-102 in the waning moments of Thursday night’s game, Jimmy Butler attempted a game-winning shot and missed.

The Celtics thought they won and were headed to the bench, but the refs ruled that Marcus Smart fouled Butler on the shot. Here’s the play:

Butler sank both free throws for the Bulls win. This game also gave us a supremely cold-blooded burn: This high-five in Marcus Smart’s face, right after the foul was called at the end of the game.


To recap: Smart committed the critical foul, took a high-five to the face, and to top it off, he only scored five points.
