Dennis Smith Jr. Had Some Not-So-Nice Words For Kyrie Irving

Mavs rookie Dennis Smith didn’t have the best time tonight, as he struggled against the Celtics (4-16; 12 points, 6 rebounds) and got worked by Kyrie Irving on both ends of the floor. Like, we’re talking ankle snatching:

And even a rejection, because Kyrie apparently does the defense thing now that he’s in Boston:

After watching that Flat Earth clinic, you can understand why DSJ lost his cool a bit and got in Kyrie’s face after a drive to the hoop. No punches were thrown but it’s the NBA so this probably qualifies as a fight:
