Celtics’ Marcus Morris says Kevin Hart will take his ‘L’ back to Philly
On Thursday night at the TD Garden, popular comedian/actor Kevin Hart sat courtside with rapper Gucci Mane to watch his Philadelphia 76ers take on the Boston Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Things did not exactly go Hart’s way during his visit to Bean Town, in addition to his taunting of the Boston crowd completely backfiring on him, as the Sixers blew a 22-point first half lead and lost 108-103 to the Celtics.

After the game, Celtics power forward Marcus Morris had quite the hilarious response when asked about what he thought of playing in front of Hart.
“Kevin Hart’s a funny dude,” Morris said. “It’s even funnier he’s gotta go back to Philly with an L.”
Well played, Marcus. Well played, indeed.
In 28 minutes of action off the Boston bench, Morris finished in double figures with 11 points on 3-of-8 shooting from the floor, six rebounds, three assists, and one blocked shot during the victory. Rising star rookie small forward Jayson Tatum led the way for Boston with a team-high 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting, while point guard Terry Rozier had 20 points, nine assists, and seven rebounds on the night.
Morris and the Celtics will look to take a commanding 3-0 series lead on Saturday night when they travel to take on the Sixers at Wells Fargo Center for Game 3.
