During Game 5 on Tuesday night, the Phoenix Suns were getting blown out of the water in the third quarter before eventually losing to the Denver Nuggets by a final score of 118-102.

In the third quarter, however, the Suns took a timeout, and Nuggets guard Bruce Brown and star player Nikola Jokic went to the Suns’ bench to listen in on what they had to say during that timeout which led to Kevin Durant not being too happy with what they were doing.

Durant did everything in his power to not allow Bruce Brown in the huddle while giving Jokic a slight shove which led him to flop back to draw a technical foul on Durant.

After the game, head coach Monty Williams talked with the media and didn’t like what happened during that interaction and thinks the NBA has to do a better job when it comes to opposing players listening in on timeouts like that.

Durant on the other hand didn’t take any ill will for it and knows what Denver was trying to do as they were up big and winning on all facets of the floor at that point.
