Dwight Howard and Anthony Davis both say their physical confrontation on the Los Angeles Lakers' bench was a momentary disagreement that has already been resolved. Chris Paul scored his 20,000th career point on the way to 23 points and 14 assists, and Devin Booker added 14 points in the Phoenix Suns' 115-105 victory over the winless Lakers on Friday night.
The Phoenix Suns released a statement regarding a potential media investigation into the workplace culture of the franchise, denying that the organization or owner Robert Sarver have a history of racism or sexism. The Suns responded by saying they were “completely baseless claims” and “documentary evidence in our possession and eyewitness accounts directly contradict the reporter’s accusations, and we are preparing our response to his questions.” Sarver — a Phoenix businessman — has owned the Suns since 2004.
