When the New York Knicks went to the locker room at halftime of their game on Thursday against the Chicago Bulls, Julius Randle and Evan Fournier were having a heated discussion. Both players downplayed the argument after the game.
“I just saw something and the biggest thing is communication, I can’t let things stay in and be frustrated. I’ve got to talk to my teammates,’ Randle said. “I think the biggest thing is, you saw that interaction, and it looks like we’re arguing, whatever it was.”
Fournier said he and Randle were discussing defensive coverages and rebounding, as they went into the break. Both players agreed it was best to air things out, as opposed to holding back.
“I would rather have that than not saying anything and hold grudges and stuff,” Fournier said. “So, stuff like that happens all the time and I’m glad it happened, because we played much better in that third quarter.”
