The incident occurred late in the third quarter of the 115-114 Suns win. Randle shoved Johnson after the pair made contact in the post while fighting for rebounding position. Randle was ejected, and Johnson went on to score 21 points in the fourth quarter, including a game-winning 3-pointer to beat the buzzer.
