Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker and Minnesota Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng were ejected from Wednesday night's game in Phoenix following a scuffle, and Booker had to be restrained after it appeared the two men had decided to settle their differences in the Talking Stick Resort Arena tunnel.

The incident occurred about halfway through the third quarter, after Booker appeared to take an elbow to the face from Dieng. Booker than put his hand in Dieng's face.

Afterwards, Dieng and Booker appeared to agree to settle their differences in the arena tunnel, and Booker had to be restrained as he rushed toward the exit.

Booker, who leads the Suns in points (24.5) and assists (7.0) per game this season, had already picked up a technical foul earlier in the game.

The Suns lost to the Timberwolves 118-91 to fall to 11-38 this season.
