SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Kings guard Iman Shumpert was stopped from going into the Portland locker room by area and Trail Blazers security after Sacramento’s 115-107 victory Monday night time.

Shumpert apparently was offended at Blazers heart Jusuf Nurkic, who set a tough display within the second half.

“Some stuff wanted to be between me and him, a dialog between two males,” Shumpert mentioned. “Some stuff occurred on the market that we would have liked to have a dialog about. That is it.”

  • De’Aaron Fox scored 16 factors and made a key Three-pointer with 1:30 remaining, and the Sacramento Kings beat the Portland Trail Blazers 115-107 on Monday night time.

Nurkic shrugged it off.

“I am not going to fear about it,” he mentioned. “He is going into retirement soon. I am not going to fear a couple of man who’s going into retirement soon.”

After the sport, Shumpert apologized through Twitter.

I apologize to the followers if I made a scene. Wasn’t my intention however this 2019 stuff is all a couple of “story”. Do not let that distract you from this younger Scores ball membership getting an ideal victory towards a examined Blazers staff #theScoresisHERE #purpletalk

The 28-year-old Shumpert was known as for a technical foul within the third quarter. He later was walked to the Sacramento bench by a teammate after arguing with somebody on the Portland bench.
