After a 2-5 start, the Celtics have a chance to get back to .500 on Friday when they host the Milwaukee Bucks. Whether its coincidence or not, things turned around right after Marcus Smart called out Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown in a postgame press conference following a 128-114 loss to the Bulls.
On Thursday, Celtics head coach Ime Udoka joined Zolak & Bertrand and was asked about any residual fallout from those comments. Udoka is confident there is none, and his team has put the incident behind them.
“Yeah, it is,” Udoka replied when asked if the matter is ‘resolved.’ “It was a letdown to lose that game to Chicago, and that stuff was expressed, but it was taken care of. And as I mentioned, those guys have been together much longer than anybody else here. So as in any family, you’re going to have discussions and arguments and debates, and they did it, had their words, and we’ve obviously played better since then. And even up to that point, although the results didn’t show I felt we were playing the right way.”
