Unlike the last time Young got involved in an on-the-court scuffle with the Phoenix Suns, the sixth man got some support from his teammates with Jordan Hill jumping in to action.

Hill tried to prevent Marcin Gortat from getting involved with a bear hug, but as a result, was ejected along with Gooden late in the fourth quarter.

As for Gooden, Young’s arm was locked underneath Gooden’s and the veteran aggressively pulled Young out from under the basket violently.

Gooden and Hill may receive suspensions for their roles in the altercation while Young was able to continue playing and likely won’t receive any punishment.
