As badly as the Celtics played at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Monday — they lost to the Clippers by 24 points — police say Jae Crowder’s girlfriend behaved even worse. According to TMZ, Dana Lambert, who has a child with Crowder, was arrested for simple battery for allegedly spitting on another woman while arguing during the game. Lambert was released early Tuesday after posting $20,000 bail. This is not the first bit of drama involving Crowder’s girlfriend. Last season, Lambert allegedly hacked into the NBA player’s Instagram account and posted a picture of another woman with a nasty caption.
