Celtics-Wizards scuffle prompted by Jae Crowder poking John Wall in the face
By Tim Cato
The Wizards and the Celtics found themselves in an absurd yelling match after the buzzer of Boston’s 117-108 win on Wednesday. Jae Crowder — whose team won, mind you — took exception to the way John Wall was acting after the game, getting in his face, until Crowder reached out and hit Wall in the nose.

The two teams hadn’t left the court, and there was some very minor scuffling between each side before they each excited. Extra security was placed around the locker rooms, but no players waited to confront each other like we saw earlier this year.
