An ugly scene developed after Houston’s 123-107 victory over Dallas on Tuesday night when Rockets forward Trevor Ariza waited outside the Mavericks’ locker room to confront center Salah Mejri.
According to a source, Mejri made a derogatory comment to Ariza about Ariza’s wife and children between the third and fourth quarters. Ariza became so upset that he exchanged words with Mejri, which prompted the referees to give Ariza a technical, his second of the game, leading to an ejection.
