Things were slowly building up to this moment between Hassan Whiteside and Alex Len during tonight's game between the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat. Early in the third quarter, Markieff Morris was sent home early after delivering a hard foul on former teammate Goran Dragić on a fastbreak.
Over time, both teams got more and more chippy with one another. Then, later in the quarter, Len shoved Whiteside away after getting posterized and that's when all awkward hell broke loose. After getting pushed by Len, Hassan responded by not throwing a two piece or just one haymaker, but by trying to wrap him up by legs like this was WWE.
As you tell in above GIF, a whole lot of nothing happened, but both guys were ejected for their actions.
