Bismack Biyombo couldn’t finish a dominant Game 5 victory for the Phoenix Suns with a two-handed dunk with 2.3 seconds left, thanks to Dallas Mavericks backup big Marquese Chriss.
Suns coach Monty Williams stated, “We’re trying to win the game.” “I understand the game’s competitiveness, but we’re just trying to win the game.”
When Biyombo turned around and touched him on the chest, Chriss screamed expletives and slapped Biyombo’s hand down to break up the jam.
The two were immediately separated and ejected by referee David Guthrie, but that didn’t stop Chriss from going through the Suns’ entrance to go after Biyombo.TNT sideline reporter Allie LaForce reported Chriss and Biyombo were separated before punches or physical contact was made.Still, there could be possible fines and suspensions coming out of this incident.
A former Suns player, Chriss has only seen action in three games in this best-of-7 Western Conference semifinal series. Playing a total of 11 minutes in this series, Chriss has totaled seven points and five rebounds in those three games.
“All that stuff that happens that’s extracurricular is, I don’t have anything to say about that,” Williams continued. “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.”
