Isaiah Thomas called out DeMarre Carroll by calling him a nonfactor Friday night in the wake of the Toronto Raptors forward’s hard push to the back on a fast break that sent the Boston Celtics guard sprawling to the floor.

Thomas immediately ran at Carroll to confront him after the second-quarter play. The ensuing fracas resulted in technical fouls for both players and for the Celtics’ Jae Crowder, and Carroll ultimately earned a flagrant foul 1 for the initial shove.

“It was intentional. Did you see it?” Thomas said after scoring 20 points in the Celtics’ 107-97 loss. “Yeah, that’s not a basketball play by any means. Guys who aren’t factors in games do that. It is what it is.”
