It appeared the Boston Celtics had notched a 103-102 victory over the Chicago Bulls at the United Center Thursday night after Chicago forward Jimmy Butler missed his attempted game-winner. The Bulls received a reprieve, however, after Boston guard Marcus Smart was whistled for fouling Butler in the act of shooting. 

Replays showed Smart barely made contact with Butler, if he touched him at all, and it's likely that brush of the elbow didn't affect the shot. Celtics head coach Brad Stevens was understandably upset with the call, and he made his feelings known with some choice words we can't type here. 

After the game, Thomas took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the call:

Butler made both free throws, and the Bulls held on for a 104-103 win.
