After the game, Butler wanted to make it clear to Smart not to pull that same stunt again.
“He’s a great actor, acting tough. It’s what he does. I don’t think he’s about that. I’m the wrong guy to get in my face. He needa take it somewhere else because I’m not for that.
That’s the first, the last time too. We not gonna sit here and get each other’s faces. He’s not about that life, calm it down.
