Dennis Smith Jr. exchanged words with Ben Simmons during the Knicks' loss to the Sixers on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. After the game, Smith weighed in.
"He was just, you know, doing a lof of things that wasn't really related to basketball," Smith said. "He knows me . ... I'm just saying, just keep it hooping. If there's anything else, just let it be known. But other than that, just play basketball."
Smith and Simmons first got into it Wednesday when Kevin Knox posterized Simmons. After Knox rose over Simmons and threw down a ferocious dunk right in his face, Smith ran over and taunted him as Simmons was laying on the floor under the basket.
The two then exchanged words as the teams left for the locker room at halftime.
The Knicks and Sixers don't meet again this season, so any more fireworks between Smith and Simmons will have to wait until next season.
