Brad Stevens was livid about foul call on Marcus Smart
Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens was livid about a foul call on Marcus Smart at the end of Thursday’s game against Chicago that helped give the Bulls the win.
Boston was up 103-102 in the final seconds of the game when Jimmy Butler raised up for a potential winning shot. Smart was defending him and tried to block the shot and got Butler on the elbow. He was called for a foul, which left Stevens steamed.

Butler made both of his free throws, and the Bulls won the game 104-103.

Butler: "A foul's a foul. He hit my elbow."
