The game between the Washington Wizards and the Oklahoma City Thunder had two very different stories for the capital franchise. The first, happy, with a victory in the last moments of the duel and that leaves it above 50% with a balance of 21 wins and 20 losses. The second, aggressive and sad.

According to Shams Charania (The Athletic), Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Montrezl Harrell got into a physical altercation at halftime in the match played at the Capital One Arena. Harrell showed his disagreement for not receiving the ball on the last possession of the second quarter to his teammate. The conversation between the two gradually rose in level until they got into a fight before the rest of the team could intervene to break them up. The journalist reports that despite launching the occasional blow, none came into contact.

When the two players reached the locker room, the confrontation was already over. Security was present throughout the break to ensure that tension between Harrell and Caldwell-Pope was not reignited.
