Jae Crowder took to Twitter to voice his displeasure over Celtics fans cheering for Utah Jazz star Gordon Hayward during Boston’s 115-104 win Tuesday night.
First, Crowder tweeted his thoughts on the Hayward cheering.
Then, the Celtics forward retweeted a fan saying he should go back to the Dallas Mavericks, where Crowder played before the Mavs dealt him to Boston as part of the Rajon Rondo trade.
The most shocking tweet came next, though.
Crowder also voiced his displeasure to reporters after Tuesday’s game, saying he felt “disrespected” by Celtics fans cheering for Hayward, a potential free agent target for Boston.
“I heard the cheering before the game. I didn’t like that at all,” Crowder said, via ESPN.com. “I think that was a sign of disrespect to me from the fans. That sparked a little fire in me.”
The Celtics forward went off for 21 points thanks to five 3-pointers, so that motivation clearly worked.
