The Boston Celtics beat the Miami Heat 114-94 in Game 1 of their opening-round playoff series. However, controversy ensued toward the end of the game.

Celtics star Jayson Tatum was going up for a rebound when Caleb Martin rushed into the paint and threw a hard block. Tatum fell hard to the ground. Martin exchanged words with Jaylen Brown as Tatum walked away from the commotion.

Former Celtics player Brian Scalabrine suggested that the play was suspicious.

"Erik Spoelstra called a timeout with 1:30 down by 16 (points), 30 seconds later that play happens," Scalabrine said. "Why is he calling a timeout at 1:30 down 16? Why is that play happening 30 seconds later?"

Tatum notched his first career postseason triple-double with 23 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists.

"It's a physical game playing against a physical team. S---'s going to happen," Tatum said. "It's probably not the last time I'm going to get hit like that, or fouled in this series."

Game 2 is set for Tuesday night in Boston.
