Pistons forward Josh Smith isn't happy with Kenneth Faried, according Vincent Goodwill of the Detroit News, calling the Nuggets forward "a clown."
Josh Smith on Faried: "He's a clown, quote me on that." Story coming— Vincent Goodwill (@vgoodwill) October 30, 2014
Smith on Faried: "He fears me. He's scared of me. He knows it's coming." It being he's gonna take it to him next meeting— Vincent Goodwill (@vgoodwill) October 30, 2014
Smith's remarks stem from comments Faried made following the Pistons 89-79 loss to Denver on Wednesday.
"Josh Smith, we let him keep shooting. And he ended up with 25, but he still kept shooting. He shot them out of the game."
Smith made only 9 of 22 shots against the Nuggets, as opposed to Faried, who scored 22 on 8-of-12 shooting.
The Pistons and Nuggets don't play again until Feb. 6.
