Celtics' Danny Ainge downplays Jaylen Brown-Marcus Morris fight

R.J. Hunter Celtics

"It's a culture thing you've got to build every single day".

It's obvious that Irving's reaction wasn't just in the heat of the moment, the final play bothered him so much that he went into condemning his team for not having the sense to do what he wanted to be done.

"They have a great young team and could be very good for a long time".

The Celtics begin the second half of the season on Saturday night in Orlando against the Magic (7:05, TV: NBC Sports Boston; radio: WROR-105.7 FM) as a three-game road trip continues. "Heck, I remember those things happening to [Rajon] Rondo and Perk [Kendrick Perkins]".

Former lottery pick Jaylen Brown and Marcus Morris were caught on a fan's video getting into each other's faces during a Celtics timeout in the second quarter.

"We've been through some ups and downs, " said Jayson Tatum.

It's two good kids that are competitive.

"It's something where those things happen to best friends even".

The Boston Celtics are planning to invest a massive amount of money in Kyrie Irving after the season, and the star point guard showed us an example on Thursday night of one of the many reasons the team is willing to do that.

"So we have a lot of ground to make up in that aspect. You've got to be patient and continue to work hard and things will fall in place".

That shouldn't be surprising, as Smart is one of the players you could consider a brother-in-arms while you battle to win the game and usually directs his ire to the opposition, and nobody else (unless you're an assistant coach on the bench, perhaps).

"If you don't humble yourself, the world has a way of humbling it for you, " said Marcus Smart.
