The incident occurred just before tipoff when a fan directed a derogatory remark at Durant.

In response, Durant approached the fan, prompting security to prepare for an ejection. However, Durant intervened, asking security to allow the fan to stay.

As seen in the video, Durant managed to de-escalate the situation fairly quickly.

The Suns are aiming to put an end to the Mavericks‘ six-game winning streak. So far this season, the two teams have faced off twice, with each securing a victory.

The Mavericks are currently one-game behind Phoenix in the Western Conference standings.
