Kevin Durant gets tech for shoving Nikola Jokic in sideline confrontation

DENVER -- Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic was involved in another feisty sideline confrontation Tuesday night, but this time he was on the receiving end of the shove, from Suns superstar Kevin Durant.

Durant was called for a technical foul after shoving Jokic out of the way when the two-time MVP attempted to infiltrate an impromptu huddle among Phoenix players and coaches during Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinal series.

The incident occurred when Nuggets reserve Bruce Brown and Jokic approached the Suns' huddle while Devin Booker was shooting free throws with 37.
