Well it was fun while it lasted.
Less than 24 hours after one of their best wins of the season the Celtics reverted to their old ways (no ball movement, poor shot selection, no penetration, out-rebounded) en route to a 115-99 loss to the Miami Heat.
Oh yeah, there was also a fight on the bench.
Fan video submitted to Bleacher Report showed Marcus Morris and Jaylen Brown getting into it during a timeout on the bench. Things escalated from there with a little shoving going on and the two players had to be separated.

It appears Morris was upset with Brown about something that had just happened on the floor. Morris started in on Brown and the two had to be separated with Morris getting in one final shove at the end.
The Athletic’s Jared Weiss said Morris started in on Brown for not getting back on defense.
Context on this Mook-Jaylen thing: Mook was laying into Jaylen for not getting back on defense. We’ve seen the Marcuses get at Jaylen several times this year for messing up a defensive action, so the argument isn’t anything new. But the shove seems to be.

The video came out after the Celtics had done all their postgame interviews so no one was asked about it and neither Brown nor Morris spoke to the media.
The Celtics are headed to Orlando. Next chance we’ll have to talk to them will be Saturday morning at shoot-around prior to their game against the Magic where this will certainly be a hot topic of conversation.
