Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart - known for his short temper - was ejected from today's Celtics v Philadelphia 76ers match for a blatant push on 76ers star Joel Embiid.
Embiid blocked Smart's run as he attempted to chase the man he was guarding, putting Smart on the ground. Smart quickly got up and gave Embiid an almighty shove, sending him reeling.
