Marcus Smart was furious after the home loss of the Boston Celtics to the Chicago Bulls on Monday night (128-114).

The Celtics blew a 19-point lead in the third quarter (77-96) and saw the Bulls outscore them 39-11 in the final quarter to seal the deal.

Smart didn’t like what happened in the contest and called out his teammates Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. The veteran guard said Tatum and Brown need to pass the ball more and don’t just create plays for themselves. Brown (28 points) and Tatum (20 points) combined for 48 points. Meanwhile, Marcus Smart posted 16 points, on 5/11 shooting.

Boston dropped to 2-5 and has now lost three straight. On the other hand, Chicago is on top of the East, at 6-1.

With DeMar DeRozan in the lineup, the Bulls have emerged as one of the betting favorites to claim the title. Visit top betting website Pickswise for the latest odds in all NBA games.
