The Boston Celtics handled the Washington Wizards on Wednesday in Game 5 to take a 3-2 series lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals, but someone’s presence in the TD Garden crowd made the away team a little suspicious.
Bill Belichick is elusive when it comes to the media, but it’s not out of the ordinary to see him and other members of the New England Patriots at Celtics games. So when Boston forward Jae Crowder mentioned that the team was familiar with the Wizards’ plays after the 123-101 win, CSN Wizards tried to get to the bottom of things with a Spygate joke.
Of course, the Celtics and Wizards play four games against each other every regular season in addition to the soon-to-be six playoff games this series, so both teams are well aware of each other’s style of play. That likely won’t stop Celtics fans from clapping back at CSN’s joke, though.
