Los Angeles Lakers' players Dwight Howard and Anthony Davis got into a brief physical altercation during the game with Phoenix Suns, which they lost 115-105, on Friday.

They had a heated argument in the second period of the game held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

After a brief scuffle, Howard fell back to the bench and their teammates separated them right after.

"We just had a disagreement about something that was happening on the floor," Howard said about the incident, adding: "There are no issues between me and him. And that's my brother. That's my teammate."

Davis also confirmed that the situation between them has been resolved, saying: "After the situation happened, I and DH talked about it ... and we left it in the locker room at halftime."

LA Lakers made a bad start to NBA 2021-22 season, losing both of their first two games.
