The Boston Celtics aren’t as good as fans would have liked the team to be this year, given the slew of winning seasons they’re coming off of, but the team is doing much better than expected. This has a lot to do with the leadership of Brad Stevens and the play of the young and talented roster.

But while the Celtics have been better than expected this year, they’re still prone to some embarrassing plays, and we saw one such play on Tuesday night. The Celtics were in Madison Square Garden to take on the Knicks when this happened.

We see alley-oops every night in the NBA, it’s not everyday that you see an one get rejected.
