Bill Walker had this to say initially after the incident:

“I’m a grown-up. You put your hands on my face, what part of the game is that? You know what the man does , , , would you want me to put my hands on your face and push you away? I’m a man at the end of the day. It’s disrespectful. You should not do that to any man.”

But later said he bumped into Celtics combatant Kevin Garnett by the team bus to clear the air.

“When I was leaving the arena , I talked to him,” Walker said. “We’re both competitors; we wanted to win. Emotions run high when you play at that level. We shook hands.’’
