Towards the tail end of the Phoenix Suns’ win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, there was some extra curricular action in a game with the final result well in hand.

With less than 10 seconds left in a game separated by three scores, TWolves forward taurean prince shoved Chris Paul for a foul that seemed to have no intention but to retaliate against the Suns guard for showing him up.

Prince had just air-balled his final attempt and Chris Paul decided to have some fun with a dribble between his defender’s legs to escape with the win. But Prince chased him down just to give him rather healthy hip check.

After the game, Chris Paul was asked about the contact. Instead of letting things linger, the Suns star was more understanding about the play.

“I ain’t tripping. It is what it is,” said Chris Paul after the Suns win. “I get it. Nobody ever wants to be embarrassed. I wasn’t trying to embarrass him. I’m trying to get by him.”

It was certainly just a bad beat for Taurean Prince, who just airmailed his last attempt and got hit with a playground move right after.

But as long as the Suns end up on the winning side, Chris Paul probably isn’t going to be bothered by anything else.
