Marcus Smart was ejected from a game earlier this month against the Magic for an elbow to the face of Elfrid Payton. On Friday, Smart once again saw his evening end early. This time it was for contact he made to an area much lower than the shoulders.
After the incident with Payton, the Magic guard indicated he didn’t think the play was dirty. The opinions of this play by Smart will likely be different, as the motion doesn’t appear to be something that would be considered a “basketball play.”
A suspension can probably be expected for the Celtics rookie as well as a bunch of questions Smart will have to answer.
