Things got testy Tuesday when the Suns hosted the Timberwolves.

In the third quarter, Phoenix guard Devin Booker and Minnesota forward Gorgui Dieng were involved in an on-court incident. The two players confronted each other and Booker put his hand in Dieng's face and appeared to shove him.

The two were ejected, but the scuffle wasn't done yet.

As they were being escorted off the court, Booker told Dieng to meet him in the hallway.

Booker then had to be held back as he was running off the court.

Security was on "high alert" and "both locker rooms were locked to prevent anything from happening," according to reports from The Arizona Republic.

Minnesota went on to win, 118-91.
