Marcus Smart fined $50,000 for shoving Joel Embiid

Marcus Smart

The NBA is sending a message to Marcus Smart.

The league fined Smart $50,000 for shoving Joel Embiid in the third quarter of Wednesday’s Boston Celtics-Philadelphia 76ers game. Smart was hit with a flagrant 2 foul resulting in an automatic ejection.

The league said the hefty fine was due to Smart’s history of repeated acts of unsportsmanlike conduct.

Smart was fined $25,000 for an altercation with JR Smith in October. He was fined $35,000 for an incident with DeAndre’ Bembry in January.

The next step in discipline might involve a suspension.
