Jusuf Nurkic got tangled up with Keon Ellis and Ellis went down. Nurkic took exception to Ellis’ play and stood over him.
The Kings players on the court did not like Nurkic standing over their teammate. Malik Monk and others came over to push Nurkic away. Nurkic slapped away Monk’s hand.
Nurkic then exchanged words with Monk and De’Aaron Fox. The play resulted in technical fouls on both Jusuf Nurkic and Malik Monk.
