A Fan Fight Broke Out at the Celtics Game


My interest for the Bulls-Celtics series dropped significantly when Rajon Rondo got hurt, but Bulls writer Sean Highkin was able to pique my interest during Game 5 when he dropped this tweet:

A fight appears to have broken out in the stands underneath the Celtics’ basket.

Finally! It took nearly three weeks, but we have our first NBA Playoffs fan fight. And because it’s 2017, some heroes moved quickly and took some video of drunk Celtics fans going at it:

Can’t blame these guys for being on edge — their one seed is barely squeaking by the damn Bulls.
