Just a minute into the third quarter, Celtics guard Marcus Smart was ejected for shoving Sixers center Joel Embiid to the ground, prompting a brief confrontation before cooler heads prevailed. Smart quickly got up after the play and shoved Embiid to the floor. After an officials' review, Smart was ejected for a flagrant foul 2.

"I'm disappointed in Marcus", Stevens said. He knows how we all feel and he knows we all love him.

"They put the ball in my hand in the fourth quarter and tell me to make plays", Butler said.

"I've been hearing that these guys (the Celtics) can guard me better than anybody else, so I just had to come out and show that I'm the most unstoppable player in the league".

Both Smart and Embiid had to be restrained by their teammates to prevent the altercation from further escalating.
