IMO it was a foul but not one that should have been called. That's absolutely a foul call in the 1st quarter.

It was dumb, he played great defense and forced Butler into a tough shot.

I agree

Smart is still whining how unfair the call was even after every fan of the league saw on the replays that he clearly made contact with Butler's elbow. This is hilarious staff.

"I’m one of the best defenders in this league. I played hell of a great defense right there. I know I did," Smart told reporters in Chicago. "I got punished for playing good D, I guess."

The guy is an idiot.

Yeah Smart might want to back off that, after the league reviewed the play and confirmed the call.
