A Memphis Grizzlies team meeting Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time) turned highly emotional and involved a physical altercation between Garrett Temple and Omri Casspi in the locker room, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The Grizzlies held a 30-minute postgame meeting after their 101-94 loss to the Detroit Pistons, a game where they gave up a 13-0 run in the fourth quarter.

Team leaders Marc Gasol and Mike Conley stayed in the locker room even longer, reported David Cobb of The Commercial-Appeal.

Coach J.B. Bickerstaff told reporters that the meeting entailed "a conversation that needed to be had," and he said it would stay in the locker room.

Memphis has lost three straight and eight of its last 10.
