"The guy was trying to send a message and Tyler got slammed," the assistant coach says. "He just got up and walked to the free-throw line. He didn't point at the kid, didn't glare at him - nothing. He just hit the free throws and ran back and played defense. He did dunk on the kid later in the game."
