Things got testy after the Boston Celtics 117-108 win over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.  John Wall and Jae Crowder got physical and had to be separated.

via ESPN:

Crowder could be seen putting his finger in Wall’s face after the two exchanged words, and Wall appeared to land a quick open-hand slap before teammates and staffers rushed in to prevent a further escalation. Wall took another swipe at Crowder in the scrum, which left Boston’s Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier trying to confront him.

Shouting appeared to continue between the two teams as players entered their respective locker rooms, which are in close proximity.  Five Boston police officers stood guard between the locker rooms of the Celtics and Washington Wizards after tempers flared following the final buzzer of Wednesday’s game at TD Garden.

“Just some altercation. We knew there was going to be some trash-talking,” Wall said. “We knew it was going to be a physical game. That’s all it was: Just a little trash-talking and a physical game.”

Crowder didn’t care to discuss what flared the incident.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about. I ain’t got no comment about that,” he said. “You want to talk about the game? Anyone want to talk about the game?”
