By that point, more than 20 minutes after the game, Cousins appeared to have settled down. That wasn’t the case in the immediate aftermath. According to multiple sources, Cousins said, “That’s OK. I’ll get him after the game,” on his way from the scene. There was, therefore, a bit larger security presence in the hallway between the two dressing rooms. Smart, meanwhile, was profoundly unruffled by his significantly larger adversary. “To be honest, I’m not really worried about that,” he said of the altercation after going for 11 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals. “He knows that I’m not going to back down from it. I don’t see why I got the tech though, but it’s all good. They didn’t really tell me that, but it’s all good. I’m one of those guys that’s not going to back down from anything, so I’m going to let that be known.” Boston Herald

Told of Cousins’ objections, Smart said, “Man, it was a box-out. That’s his opinion. Everybody saw the play. Like I said, I’m not going to back down from anything. If that’s what he thinks, that’s what he thinks.” And the pick? “Once again, that’s what he thinks,” Smart said. “I’m just playing defense.” Boston Herald

But that ankle injury is still somewhat bothersome to the rookie. Following Sunday night's loss, Smart acknowledged that he was experiencing some pain. "A little bit when I woke up; it was a little sore," Smart said. "It didn't swell, but it was definitely a little sore. But that's expected." When asked whether he was physically back to where he was before the injury, Smart said he's "not all the way but I'm here." CSNNE.com
