Flopping is a very frustrating part of sports, and the NBA is no different.
Whether you're a fan, player or coach, no one wants to see flopping.
Don't miss NBC Sports Boston's coverage of Celtics-76ers Game 3, which begins Friday at 5:30 p.m. with Celtics Pregame Live followed by tip-off at 6:30 p.m. You can also stream the game on the MyTeams App.
Celtics forward Grant Williams committed a foul on Sixers center Joel Embiid late in the first quarter, and Stevens was not pleased with the call. ESPN captured Stevens' reaction, and it was pretty hilarious.

It didn't look like Williams made much contact with Embiid, but the C's forward is a rookie and the Sixers center is an All-Star, so we really can't be surprised that the call went in Philly's favor.
Aside from any flopping by Embiid, there wasn't much for the Celtics to complain about in Game 2 of their first round series. Boston fell behind by double digits early but outscored Philadelphia 101-68 over the final three quarters. Jayson Tatum also scored a playoff career high 33 points and set a new record for most 3-point shots made in a playoff game by a player 22 years old or younger.
The Celtics will take a commanding 3-0 series lead if they win again Friday night.
