Bismack Biyombo, Marquese Chriss separated in locker room tunnel
Bismack Biyombo and Marquese Chriss had to be separated in the locker room tunnel at the end of Game 5 on Tuesday night between the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns.
Biyombo went for a dunk attempt with 2.3 seconds left and his Suns up 108-80. Chriss didn’t like seeing Biyombo try to add to the big lead and gave him a hard foul.
Bismack Biyombo and Marquese Chriss were ejected after Chriss appeared not too happy with Biyombo attempting a dunk with about 3 seconds remaining. @JGSports_6 heard Chriss say "That's bull (expletive)" multiple times before Biyombo got in his face. #RallyTheValley #NBA pic.twitter.com/WBUcCK032p

Chriss was obviously frustrated about his team losing by 30 and didn’t want to see Biyombo get a cheap dunk at the buzzer.
Biyombo’s Suns lead the series 3-2.
