Knicks’ RJ Barrett, Obi Toppin need to be separated during timeout

During a 130-116 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, Knicks standouts RJ Barrett and Obi Toppin had to be separated during the third quarter as the team led 86-83.

Amid a timeout called by head coach Tom Thibodeau, the two players engaged in a shouting match on the sidelines.

Thibodeau had to separate Barrett and Toppin, as did other teammates during the called timeout.

Barrett and Toppin also seemingly patched things up afterward as the team continued to overtake the game and recorded an important 130-116 road win in Cleveland.
