Phoenix Suns’ Markieff Morris, Archie Goodwin fight on team bench

An awful 2015-2016 season for the Phoenix Suns lowered to another level of embarrassing on Wednesday night, when teammates Markieff Morris and Archie Goodwin got into a scuffle on the team’s bench during their 112-104 loss to the Golden State Warriors.

In this screenshot of the physical altercation, it appears that Morris may be choking Goodwin:

Now, to be fair, perhaps that’s just a perfectly timed screenshot that makes the incident look worse than it was in real time. 

After the game, Suns interim head coach Earl Watson addressed the incident, saying that Morris and Goodwin are “the closest on the team”:

And postgame quotes from Morris and Goodwin:

So, it looks like everything is now okay between Morris and Goodwin, which is good news at least.

But everything about Wednesday night’s game really summarizes how things are going for the Suns and Warriors this season. The Suns get another loss to fall to 14-40, and have their players fighting each other on the bench. The Warriors get another win, and have the best start in NBA history through 52 games, at 48-4.
