TV cameras showed security officials going toward the tunnel to make sure both players kept away from each other after leaving the court. Chriss was supposed to exit through the tunnel on the opposite side of the court and head to the visitors’ locker room. Mavericks center Boban Marjanovic was among those who followed Chriss into the locker room to keep things from escalating, according to ESPN.
“I get the competitiveness of the game, but we’re just trying to win the game,” Phoenix coach Monty Williams said after the game.

“All the stuff that happens that’s extracurricular, I don’t have anything to say about that. I understand how chippy it can be. We just want to win the game and that’s it. We’re trying to get one more win, and that’s our focus right now.”
Neither Biyombo nor Chriss spoke to reporters after the game.
