Marcus Smart and the Boston Celtics lost a close game to the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday, and one play seemed to bother them more than others after the loss.

Smart was fouled with just under five seconds remaining and his Celtics down 103-100 to the Bucks. The officials said it was a non-shooting foul, which gave Smart two free throws rather than three.

The Celtics are really reaching if they think that was a bad call.
