DETROIT -- Perhaps if you were watching Wednesday's Celtics-Pistons game on television or radio, you heard a graphic expletive yelled over the air. That was Glen "Big Baby" Davis at a Detroit fan after the fan kept calling him "fat boy" during the first half.

Davis yelled back clearly a graphic remark that stunned fans sitting behind the Celtics bench. The fan, Scott Zack, was warned by arena security about his heckling but was determined to press the issue about Davis's remark.

Zack said he filed a complaint with NBA security and gave them all the details of the incident. Stay tuned if Davis is fined for his remark.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers expressed disappointment in Davis, and it's not the first time this season Davis has been in some trouble with his coach.

"(If he said something back) then, shame on Glen," Rivers said. "To the victors go the spoils. I tell our guys all the time, you lose a game they have every right to yell, say whatever they want and you've got to be strong enough to walk away. So that's not the fans fault, no matter what he said. We know about it. We've got to walk off the floor. So it's that what happened, then shame on Glen Davis."
