The Washington Wizards faced off against the Boston Celtics on Saturday and this matchup presented itself as an opportunity for Wizards big man Montrezl Harrell to face off against a former Los Angeles Lakers teammate in Dennis Schroder.
There appears to be no love lost between the ex-teammates with Harrell literally talking trash to Schroder after scoring on him in the post (h/t Hoop Central on Twitter):
Montrezl Harrell had words for Schroder. 👀

Harrell made easy work of the 6-foot-3 Schroder down low and the Wizards center made sure to give him a bit of a message after the deuce.
It’s no secret that Harrell isn’t too fond of his single season with the Lakers last season. The former Sixth Man of the Year winner did not appreciate his diminished role in coach Frank Vogel’s rotation and he’s been pretty vocal about it as well. On this particular occasion, it looks like it’s Schroder who was on the receiving end of Harrell’s saltiness.
Harrell, along with Wizards teammates Kyle Kuzma and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, made his way to the Wizards this summer as part of a blockbuster five-team trade that centered around Russell Westbrook taking his talents to Hollywood. Harrell appears to have adjusted well to life in the Capital with the 27-year-old currently in the midst of a resurgent run early in the season.
