During the game, Green dunked the ball near Cunningham and then proceeded to yell in the direction of Cunningham before doing some talking as he ran back down the court.

As you can see by clicking here, Cunningham did not even respond to Green, who was assessed a technical foul for his actions.

Following the game, in which the Pistons won 112-104, Cunningham spoke to reporters about handling trash talk.

“It depends on what they’re saying,” Cunningham said. “I’ll talk too. Nothing that I heard tonight held any weight — it was all for the cameras.”
