Jimmy Butler had some choice words for Blake Griffin after the two All-Stars were in an altercation in the fourth quarter of the Philadelphia 76ers’ 117-111 win over the Detroit Pistons on Friday. 

Following the game, Butler told ESPN’s Jorge Sedano that Griffin was “trying to be tough” when he rubbed his elbow in the 76ers star’s face after they exchanged words earlier in the game.
