Celtics guard Marcus Smart sure doesn't like losing to the Wizards. He was so angry that he lashed out at coaches in the final moments of the game.
The display was ugly enough that head coach Brad Stevens addressed what happened with the media afterwards.
"He wanted to go back in badly," Brad Stevens says of why Marcus Smart was emotional on the sideline at the end of the game.— Boston Celtics (@celtics) January 25, 2017
In the locker room, Smart also spoke to the media. He complained that the Celtics haven't played as "tough" this season.
Have the Celtics been a tough team this season? "No we haven't," said Marcus Smart.— Jay King (@ByJayKing) January 25, 2017
Marcus Smart "i hate losing... last year teams hated playing us"— Brad Auerbach (@CelticsPost) January 25, 2017
The spat was captured by the game broadcast. It looks as though Smart's argument starts with a single coach, then a second attempts to intervene. There's clear shouting back and forth, at which point Smart whips his towel in the coaches' direction three times.
Watch for yourself in the video player above. There's also another angle here.

Sure, maybe that's Smart saying he wants to go back into the game. Or maybe he's just mad because of this.
