“We know how talented of a team we are,” Bembry said. “We know what we are capable of. It’s very frustrating right now. It’s not even about (Sunday). (Saturday), it was frustrating watching us lose like that. We haven’t played like that all season. We know if we come out and play, we can play with any team. That’s just the frustrating part when we’re not ready to go when the ball is tipped then we’re just playing down and it’s a tough way to play in the NBA, so there are a lot of frustrating things, but you just have to learn from it.”
Smart and Bembry had to be separated after an exchange of words as players lined up for a jump ball. After being restrained by teammates and coaches, Smart broke free and charged toward Bembry before being restrained again. Bembry also was called for a technical foul following a video review. “I need to go back and watch it before I react to it,” Boston coach Brad Stevens said after the Celtics’ 113-105 victory. “From what I saw, obviously, deserved to be ejected. And, I don’t know what was said. I haven’t asked [Smart], I haven’t talked to him about it, but, obviously there’s league punishment for that type of stuff. Can’t react that way.”

Kyrie Irving said it was on the Celtics to finish strong after Smart was tossed. “I just think that we accept Marcus for who he is, in terms of being fiery,” said Irving, who had a game-high 32 points. “You know, bringing that type of energy. You know, s— happens sometimes where the game goes like that and an altercation happens, we just gotta pick right back up. I think it was a five- or six-point game at that point, so, you know, he knew what the score was. He knew he had one tech, he’s responsible for that; it’s our responsibility to pick him up, and finish out the game strong.”

On Feb. 12, when DeAndre’ Bembry was set to return from a groin injury that had him on the shelf for most of six weeks, Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer cited “the most fundamental thing” necessary for Bembry to salvage his second NBA season. “I think he’s got to take care of himself and find a way to stay healthy,” Budenholzer said. Three games later Bembry was back on the injured list, and that’s where he’s remained. All indications are that Bembry won’t play again this season–there are just seven games left–in which case it will end with just 21 games and 364 minutes played.
Hawks wing player DeAndre Bembry’s bad injury luck continued Friday when a MRI revealed a fracture in his right wrist that he suffered during the first regular-season game. Bembry was scheduled to return to Atlanta after the game against the Charlotte Hornets on Friday and is to be evaluated by team physicians Monday. He said he’s not sure how long he’ll be out.

Bembry’s agent, Adam Pensack, said about five workouts with NBA teams were canceled for his client due to the death of his brother. One was a workout with the Chicago Bulls against then-Michigan State guard Denzel Valentine. The Bulls ended up drafting Valentine with the 14th overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft. A workout for the Indiana Pacers was also canceled. Indiana also drafted a shooting guard in Michigan’s Caris LeVert with the 20th pick. A workout with the Toronto Raptors, owners of the ninth and 28th picks, was also canceled. With Bembry in mourning, the last thing Pensack was going to do was push his client to work out for teams to help improve his draft stock. Among the workouts Bembry did take part in before his brother died was a productive one with the Hawks, who had the 21st pick.
Bembry was familiar with the Hawks’ interest in him. And when then-general manager Wes Wilcox and head coach Mike Budenholzer called to let Bembry know the Hawks selected him at No. 21, it was a bittersweet moment. His childhood dream come true, Bembry had a quiet moment with his mother and grandmother in tribute to his brother before hugging his screaming family and friends. “I was in the hallway on the phone and I waited for them to call my name and then I was just running around, running around,” Bembry said. “Everybody just started yelling. Yeah, emotions were around. A lot of energy. At the time of the call, I was first thinking, ‘I made it to my dream.’ At first, it was just me, my mom and my grandmother in the room just in there, happy, of course, of what happened. Of course, we talked about my little brother and how much he would have been happy for me.”
