Brad Stevens 'Surprised' By Jae Crowder's Rant Against Celtics Fans

Brad Stevens 'Surprised' By Jae Crowder's Rant Against Celtics Fans

During pregame introductions for Tuesday's game between the Utah Jazz and Boston Celtics, fans at the TD Garden were noticeably cheering Jazz star Gordon Hayward, which caused Celtics forward Jae Crowder to criticize them.

Celtics fans had some scattered cheers for Utah's Gordon Hayward, who could be a free agent at season's end and has been linked to a move to Boston. "That sparked a little fire in me", he said.

Despite the lopsided result on Tuesday night, the fact of the matter is that Hayward is certainly a candidate that the Celtics should target in free agency to pair alongside Crowder at the small forward position.

While his three-point shooting may still be subpar, Boston Celtics point guard Marcus Smart has developed significantly as a playmaker this season.

The user said, "Welcome to Boston Jae.love it or leave it", to which Crowder responded: "I HAVE NO PROBLEM LEAVING IT!" Hayward led the Jazz with 23 in a losing effort. Crowder owns the best on-court net rating on the team at plus-8.6 points per 100 possessions.

Isaiah Thomas had 29 points and a career-high 15 assists for the Celtics. In terms of value over replacement player, Hayward is worth 1.7 compared with Crowder's 0.9.

The scoring binge from Thomas began just 55 seconds into the fourth quarter, as his 3-pointer from 25 feet out ignited an unprecedented late-game run.

Stevens also admitted Crowder's tweets took him by surprise.

"They did a great job moving the ball, but we got to be more communicative and more accountable in transition defense", Jazz coach Quin Snyder said.

"I was surprised, but his body of work is a better example for his appreciation of where he is and playing here". Because of the Stevens connection, Boston may be an appealing destination for him as well. Rather, he should be at the forefront of the recruiting pitch to land the potential Western Conference All-Star, the tandem could be uncontainable together in green.
