Boston Celtics' guard Marcus Smart has been ejected in the third quarter of Wednesday's contest after an altercation with Philadelphia 76ers centre Joel Embiid.

Smart took a shot on a screen from Embiid which sent the Celtics' guard to the floor. When he got back to his feet, he didn't hesitate to show Embiid his displeasure with the screen.

Smart was assessed a flagrant 2 foul and was ejected from the game. Embiid was given a technical foul for the hard screen.

Smart finished the game with three points, four assists and one rebound in 19 minutes of play.
