Referees and security got involved after Grizzlies players and Ja Morant’s dad Tee got into it with Sharpe.

According to TMZ, Sharpe was eventually escorted into the tunnel.

“They didn’t want this smoke, Dave,” Sharpe said of the incident, per ESPN. “They do all that talking and jockeying and I ain’t about that jockeying. It started with Dillon Brooks. I said he was too small to guard LeBron. He said, ‘F’ me. I said, ‘F’ you back. He started to come at me and I said, ‘You don’t want these problems.’ And then Ja came out of nowhere talking. He definitely didn’t want these problems. Then the dad came and he obviously didn’t want no problems.”

Things seemed to cool down later in the night with Sharpe and Ja’s dad Tee seemingly making up.

The Lakers ended up winning the game 122-121.
