Incident leads to hilarious tweet from Jazz big man Rudy Gobert…
Miami Heat star Hassan Whiteside has been dominant since breaking into the team this season, and he showed he isn’t scared to mix it up either after this clash.

The Heat eventually prevailed on Monday night against the Phoenix Suns, but it came after numerous technical fouls and ejections as the two teams got into several heated clashes.
Former Suns star Goran Dragic was targeted by a few of his teammates in particular, but Whiteside and Alex Len really got into it in this scrap.
After the Heat center grabbed the rebound and finished off the play, the pair got tangled up which resulted in Whiteside falling to the floor. However, he wasn’t finished there as he proceeded to get up and execute a rugby-esque tackle on Len which was followed by a mass brawl trying to split them up.
Both men were unsurprisingly ejected from the game for their indiscipline, and it ultimately hurt Phoenix more as they had nothing to show from their trip to the AA Arena.
Meanwhile, the altercation sparked a response on social media which was led by Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert who couldn’t help but poke fun at the situation.
After this ,Hassan better have 99 in the tackle category . #2Kratinggoinup
