Marcus Smart on getting in John Wall’s face: ‘I think he got the message’


John Wall got ejected for flagrantly fouling Marcus Smart, but not before Smart got in Wall’s face.

Smart, via MassLive:

He made a hard foul, and I didn’t take too fond of it. So, I let him know what I had to say. I ain’t backing down from nobody, and that’s going to be understood from here on out. I don’t know what he thought, but I think he got the message.

This isn’t the first time Smart has said he won’t back down from anyone after an on-court skirmish. He has established himself as a player who will stand up for himself.

Whether Wall “got the message,” I’m not so sure.
