Trevor Ariza said nothing happened. The NBA strongly disagreed.

Ariza and Gerald Green will both be suspended for Houston's next two games, with the NBA coming down hard on both Wednesday for what the league said was their "hostile, verbal altercation" with several players in the Los Angeles Clippers' locker room earlier this week.

No other players were disciplined, including Rockets guards James Harden and Chris Paul - both of whom left the Houston locker room with hopes of defusing the situation, the league said.
