Marquese Chriss Cheap Shot Ignites Scuffle Between Suns and Jazz

by March 15, 2018

Down 18 with 6:55 to go in the third quarter, Marquese Chriss and Jared Dudley let their tempers flare after Chriss air-balled a dunk as each player took a shot at Jazz point guard Ricky Rubio.

Dudley, who was the player to initiate contact with Rubio when he shoved him, received a flagrant foul and was ejected; Chriss was given a double technical and immediate ejection for laying Rubio to the hardwood.

Jared Dudley took to Twitter after the game to offer his thoughts on the altercation:

Donovan Mitchell and Joe Ingles each received technicals for their reaction to the scuffle. Should things escalate again down the road, it looks like the Jazz mascot is prepped to give some smoke.
