Markieff Morris and Archie Goodwin get in tussle on Phoenix Suns bench

Things are not looking great for the Phoenix Suns at the moment.

The Suns don't have a permanent head coach after firing Jeff Hornacek and replacing him in the interim with Earl Watson, an injury-ravaged squad that has several key players missing and they haven't won in nine games.

And now you can add in-fighting to that list after last night's encounter between Markieff Morris and Archie Goodwin against the Golden State Warriors. 

During an early timeout, Morris tried to explain something to Goodwin as they got to the sidelines. The conversation gets heated quickly, and teammates eventually have to step in and separate the two teammates.

That wasn't before Morris managed to get a good few shoves in on his teammate, in front of thousands of fans and millions watching on TV. Scroll down to watch.

Morris and Goodwin both came out after the game to say that the scuffle was nothing and it's not damaged their relationship at all. 

“It’s nothing,” Morris said after Golden State’s 112-104 win. “It’s part of being a leader, being a big brother. And sometimes little brothers and big brothers get into it. Wrong place, wrong time.”

“We’re family. It happens. I love him like a brother. He loves me,” Goodwin added.
