Celtics need to respond better to adversity

The Boston Celtics had a chance on this brief two-game road trip out West to showcase the strides the team has made recently while injecting itself into the race for a final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. Instead, the lasting image from a frustration-filled trip will be rookie Marcus Smart delivering an uppercut to the groin of San Antonio Spurs forward Matt Bonner that could leave him suspended as Boston begins a pivotal stretch in its playoff quest.

SAN ANTONIO -- There was no glory for a lower seed here Friday night. Just a beatdown.The team from the power conference rolled over the plucky little outfit, with the Spurs collecting a 101-89 victory over the Celtics that wasn’t really as close as those numbers may try to indicate.Even worse, one Celt appeared to take out his frustrations in an inappropriate manner. Marcus Smart was called for his second flagrant-2 ejection of the season when, with his club trailing by 22 in the fourth quarter, he delivered a low blow to San Antonio forward Matt Bonner.

Smart ejected after flagrant-2, suspension could follow

Boston Celtics rookie point guard Marcus Smart earned a flagrant-2 foul and was ejected from Friday's game for striking San Antonio Spurs' forward Matt Bonner below the belt. Smart could face further discipline, including a suspension, upon league review. Bonner was attempting to screen Smart out near the 3-point arc with 9 minutes to play in the fourth quarter, but instead of running into contact, Smart seemed to intentionally swing his arm to strike a prone Bonner.
