Devin Booker and Gorgui Dieng did not have it together on Tuesday.
The Phoenix Suns Guard and the Tall Minnesota Timberwolves man plunged into the court, promising to settle the matter behind the scenes before security was involved. 1
Players stare at the ejection
The two then exchanged words Booker squeezed Dieng's face. There was a crash and both players were ejected.
The two had eye contact after separating from each other as they walked to their separate tunnels.
Dieng Files an Invitation
Dieng appeared to invite Booker to a meeting in the hallway, and Booker seemed ready to free himself and free himself from his security escort in order to escape Direction of the tunnel to run. 19659011] Cameras lost at this time both players from the eyes.
The media present took the story from there and reported that Dieng had also escaped his security escort before being arrested again, and that Booker's security details had finally held him back. Things calmed down.
I understand that after ejecting, Dieng fended off two guards and was about 15 yards from the Sun's locker room before security could hold him back. Booker was not in the locker room or nearby when he was detained by security forces outside the tunnel

It seems the TRSA security forces are on high alert and that both locker rooms were locked to prevent anything from happening. A while later, Mikal Bridges ran in and out of Suns' locker room, so it calmed down

Probably best for Booker
As was usually an NBA conflict that talked much more than traded. But in this case, both participants seemed willing to exchange some blows, but were stopped thanks to the efforts of the Arena security staff.
This could be the best result for Booker. The story of the band is not in his favor.
Booker is by no means a small man listed at 6 feet 6 and 205 pounds. Dieng (6-11 and 245 pounds), however, has a significant advantage on both fronts and should reach.
