Dennis Smith, Kyrie Irving get into it during game (VIDEO)

Mavs rookie guard Dennis Smith clearly is not intimidated by savvy veteran Kyrie Irving, which he showed on Wednesday night.

Smith drove on Irving and drew a foul, sending the first-round draft pick to the line. Irving, though, gave Smith a bit of a shove with his elbow, which prompted a heated Smith to begin yelling at the Celtics guard. Irving was quickly ushered aside by a teammate, and the two were then separated.

Kyrie learned that Smith isn’t backing down from anyone.
