Jae Crowder Accuses Wittman of Cursing at Him


Boston forward Jae Crowder says Washington coach Randy Wittman used profanity toward him, leading to Crowder’s technical foul during the Celtics’ victory over the Wizards on Saturday night. Crowder made a layup with 3.9 seconds remaining to help Boston to a 119-117 victory.

Earlier in the final minute, referee Tony Brothers whistled Crowder for a technical for arguing while standing in the blocks awaiting John Wall’s free throws. Crowder said Wittman was on the other end of his remarks and had instigated the exchange.
