Mavericks' Marquese Chriss confronts Suns' Bismack Biyombo in tunnel after late dunk in Phoenix blowout

The Suns beat the Mavericks soundly in a crucial Game 5 of their Western Conference playoff series on Tuesday. However, the end of the game still came with some controversy. Phoenix was leading 108-80 with less than 10 seconds left and easily could have dribbled out the clock. Instead, Cameron Payne saw Bismack Biyombo breaking toward the hoop and lobbed the ball to the center. Biyombo went up for the dunk, but Dallas forward Marquese Chriss came over and fouled him with 2.3 seconds left.

Neither player spoke with the media afterward, and Suns head coach Monty Williams didn't want to address the altercation either. "I get the competitiveness of the game, but we're just trying to win the game," Williams said, via ESPN. "All the stuff that happens that's extracurricular, I don't have anything to say about that. I understand how chippy it can be. We just want to win the game and that's it. We're trying to get one more win, and that's our focus right now."

Mavericks' Marquese Chriss: Ruled out Friday

Chriss won't play Friday against the Trail Blazers due to a non-COVID illness. Chriss had one of his more productive outings in Wednesday's win over the Pistons, contributing 12 points, one rebound and a steal in just 10 minutes of action. It appears he's now dealing with a non-COVID illness, however, so he'll miss Friday's tilt with Portland as a result. Depending on his health, his next opportunity to return will be Sunday for the Mavs' regular-season finale against the Spurs.

Mavericks' Marquese Chriss: Upped to probable

The Mavericks upgraded Chriss (knee) from questionable to probable for Friday's game in Philadelphia. After having not played since Feb. 10 due to right knee soreness and missing 13 games along the way, Chriss finally looks set to play Friday. Even before the injury, Chriss hadn't taken hold of a significant role off the Dallas bench, averaging just 11.4 minutes per game over his five appearances in February. Expect him to have a similarly muted role now that he's ostensibly healthy again.
