Celtics' Marcus Smart fined $15K for criticizing overturned call against Bucks

As NBA restart looms late betting money backs Rockets to win title

"Wish we got a better one", Smart said when asked if he'd received an explanation for the call. "I think we all know what that was about..."

"We'll just call that spade a spade and that's just what it is".

The Bucks posted a photo showing the players kneeling and wearing shirts that said "Black Lives Matter". The Greek Freak ran into the Celtics guard and was called for an offensive foul which was his sixth.

"And I respect that he's doing that because he's trying to get me out of my game". So, that's what I told him at the end of the game.

The real meaning of Beyonce's Black Parade
"We're grateful to Beyonce for this celebration of the black experience", tweeted black culture website essence.com. Other famous faces to appear include Kelly Rowland , Pharrell Williams, Lupita Nyong'o , and Naomi Campbell .

With the Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks tied at 107 apiece in the final minutes of play, Smart drew a charge on Antetokounmpo, which would've fouled him out of the game. It also would have sent Antetokounmpo to the bench for the rest of the game. "They said they could not call a personal foul, so that must be when you go to the review to see if it's a hostile act I guess you can't call a personal foul". However, referees changed the call to a blocking foul after video replay, and Antetokounmpo converted a tiebreaking 3-point play that helped Milwaukee pull out a 119-112 victory.

Despite the loss, and his frustrations with the officials, Smart said he was proud of Boston's effort. "We want to take a knee because we're pushing for a higher ideal of equality, more justice, and we want to make sure we do our part in that".

"I feel like he was moving in the last play, but either way, if it was a charge, if was not a charge, I'm happy that we got the win".
