Celtics’ Marcus Smart fined $25,000 for flipping off fan

Marcus Smart flipped off a fan during the Celtics’ Game 2 loss to the Bulls last night.

NBA release:

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart has been fined $25,000 for making an obscene gesture on the playing court, it was announced today by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.

Smart giving a fan the finger, especially in Boston, isn’t a great look.

But the Celtics have a bigger problem: They trail the Bulls 2-0 and appear on the verge of losing their composure against a more physical team. Smart and his Boston teammates need to get over their frustration -- and hope it’s not too late after digging a big hole.
