It’s been a physical opening two games between the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference Finals.

With just under 3:30 to go in the third quarter on Tuesday night in Phoenix, Suns guard Devin Booker was one-on-one with the Clippers’ Pat Beverley.

But when Booker went to make a move to his right, the two collided heads and sent the Suns guard to the hardwood.

Both players were bleeding and had to go to their respective locker rooms to receive treatment.

Booker received two stitches on his nose, according to ESPN’s Cassidy Hubbarth.

Both Booker and Beverely returned to the game.

Booker ended the game with 20 points, five assists and four rebounds.

The Suns beat the Clippers on a last-second alley-oop dunk by Deandre Ayton to take a 2-0 lead in the series.
