Thunder / Grizzlies postgame altercation
Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman first tweeted the two “had an altercation near the locker rooms. Police investigating.” Later, however, Mayberry sent out that “Police captain saying an altercation did not take place and there is no investigation underway.”
Both were ejected with 2:05 remaining in the game.

Looked like Perk elbowed Z-Bo in upper back or head on prev trip and Z-Bo confronted him about it at FT line.
