Avery Bradley may have been making that face for hitting the shot to put the Celtics up three with seven seconds left, but he may as well have been wondering why one Celtic fan would stab another in a big win Wednesday night. (Boston Globe)

During the Boston Celtics’ dramatic 95-92 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night, there were some dramatics in the stands as well.
