Deandre Ayton, Monty Williams heated exchange in Suns loss to Wizards

Suns coach Monty Williams and center Deandre Ayton had a heated exchange during a timeout late in Phoenix’s 113-110 loss Tuesday night to Washington before a sellout crowd of 17,071 at Footprint Center.

The exchange occurred with Phoenix down, 107-100, with 43.4 seconds left.

“It was the whole team in those moments,” Williams said after the game. “It wasn’t just Deandre, it was the whole group out there not executing properly. It was a bit of frustration, but that happens. That was not an isolated one person or one player thing.”

Washington (12-20) used a 15-0 run late in the fourth quarter in ending a 10-game losing skid with the Ayton-Williams exchange a part of that ugly finish for the Suns (19-13).
