The Oklahoma City Thunder apparently had a bit of an episode this week after a loss.

Thunder journalist Addam Francisco reported on Friday that OKC teammates Dennis Schroder and Deonte Burton had an altercation in the locker room following Wednesday’s defeat to the Indiana Pacers. While it is unknown if the altercation was physical, Schroder supposedly called Burton out for his play.

Earlier in the day Friday, the Thunder had announced a one-game suspension for the sophomore guard Burton for “conduct detrimental to the team.” Schroder was not suspended, however.

Burton served his suspension during OKC’s 139-127 win in overtime against the Minnesota Timberwolves, a game where they did not break stride and even used some shrewd tactics to earn the victory.
