The dustups date to last season. In the teams’ third meeting, in mid-January 2016, Jae Crowder — perhaps the central protagonist in this entire drama — got tagged with a technical foul in the final minute of Boston’s 119-117 win in Washington. Crowder could be seen barking at the Wizards’ bench and pointing at then-coach Randy Wittman. After the game, Crowder suggested Wittman cursed at him and called him soft. “[Wittman] was saying something about me being soft, and bleep, bleep, bleep,” Crowder said. “I feel like he was getting away with a lot of curse words and inappropriate words to me, and I retaliated and I got hit [with the technical].” Wittman later admitted he yelled at Crowder but denied using profanity. There was no obvious escalation when the teams met again two weeks later — a lopsided Boston win — and Wittman was fired after the season.

Storyline: Celtics-Wizards Scuffle
The two got into a very public shouting match with veteran Jae Crowder playing the role of mediator in separating the two. Ahead of tonight’s game against the Nets in Brooklyn, both players shrugged off the incident as not being that big a deal. “It was two passionate guys, at the end of the day, want to win,” Brown told CSN’s Abby Chin Friday morning. “It was nothing, really. Just came out, we got a win [against Minnesota] and we’re going to get a win tonight.”
“I’ll never forget that moment,” said Crowder, who heard exactly what he needed to hear when Stevens adamantly suggested that winning was the only thing that mattered to him. “That’s all it’s about with me: winning,” Crowder said. “It’s all a desire to win — to win the next game, to win the next practice, to win the next day. My college coach [Buzz Williams at Marquette] did a great job of breaking down my focus by days. I just wanted to win that day, not worry about tomorrow, not worry about the last day, just win that day. An emphasis to have a great day, a successful day, and don’t let anything bother you.
