Philadelphia 76ers point guard Ben Simmons and the Toronto Raptors‘ Kyle Lowry, a point guard from Philadelphia, got into it on Monday night. But after an agreement to meet each other off the court following a 117-111 Sixers victory, Simmons and Lowry apparently never found each other.

Throughout the game, their distaste for one another was evident.

Even Franklin the Dog was going after Lowry.

The Sixers have apparently been in a mood to rumble lately.

Finally, with the contest no longer hanging in the balance, the pair appeared to agree to meet up after the game, at Simmons’ suggestion.

While at least one reporter indicated that a confrontation had taken place …

… that appears to have not been the case. Instead, Lowry reportedly went looking for Simmons, who went straight to the 76ers locker room and didn’t leave until media availability.

Speaking of media availability, a convenient leak apparently moved the session elsewhere.

Though most indications point to his dodging Lowry after the game, Simmons continued to talk tough to reporters: “I don’t play around. I’m not going to take shit from anybody.”
