Athletic's Charania Reports Temple & Casspi Altercation

January 03, 2019 - 8:24 am

No. This wasn't Zach Randolph taking on Rudy Gay. According to The Athletic's NBA reporter Shams Charania things got "heated" in the Grizzlies locker room between Garrett Temple and Omri Casspi Wednesday night (1/2/19) after the Grizzlies 101-94 loss against the Pistons. The report also says things turned "physical".

The argument apparently was started, according to the report, when Casspi took up for the bench players (unit) before turning into a "physical exchange".  The two were soon "separated" by others in the locker room.

JB Bickerstaff addressed the media after the game. You can listen to that audio here. Bickerstaff alluded to postgame locker room issues, but didn't talk specifically about Casspi and Temple.
