Later in the game, Butler blew Warren a kiss after he received a technical foul and got ejected. Warren, as you can see in the clip below, got the technical after clapping at Butler after he received a foul of his own.

After the game, Butler called Warren "soft" and explained his side of the story. "To me, I think It's tough for him because I can guard him, he can't guard me. At the end of the day that's what it comes down to. Like I said, I think you just gotta watch your mouth in certain situations. There's some shit you just don't say as a man. He gotta see me the next time. Because I feel like what he said was truly disrespectful and it's all good.... I ain't scared of nobody." Butler continued, "He's not even in my fucking league, nowhere near me..."
