During the third quarter of Wednesday’s game between the Phoenix Suns and the Minnesota Timberwolves, Suns forward Marcus Morris received a technical foul for yelling at an official following a foul he appeared to disagree with.

Morris didn’t cool down once he got to the bench and cameras captured him yelling at Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek before being restrained.

The bizarre exchange ended with Morris being benched for the remainder of the game.

Morris had this to say after the game:

“He was mad about it, we took him out and that’s the way it is,” Hornacek said following the game. “He’s fine, we’re all competing for the game. He said some things in the locker room to the guys. It’s all good and you move on.”

The Suns won the game 113-111, extending their winning streak to four games.
