WATCH: Marcus Morris, Jaylen Brown Involved in Confrontation During Timeout

The Celtics couldn't keep up with the Heat on Thursday night, and it appears the Celtics' emotions got the best of them during the loss.

Marcus Morris and Jaylen Brown had to be separated by Marcus Smart during a timeout. Morris shoved Brown after appearing to take exception to something the 22-year-old said.

The reasoning for the brief altercation is unclear as neither player was asked about the incident after the game, but according to NBC Sports Boston's Chris Forsberg, Morris was frustrated with Brown being slow on a defensive assignment right before the timeout.

The C's will look to be in better spirits Saturday night when they visit the Magic.
