MIAMI (AP) -Fiery Chicago Bulls rookie Joakim Noah had a testy exchange with teammate Ben Wallace during a loss at Orlando on Wednesday, but coach Jim Boylan downplayed their argument.
``I know all about it. A couple of words passed back and forth between teammates. That's all it was,'' Boylan said before Wednesday's game against the Miami Heat. ``There was no confrontation.''
Noah had a confrontation with assistant coach Ron Adams in practice Friday and sat out the next two games for disciplinary reasons.
Noah scored 12 points in Tuesday's 102-88 loss at Orlando. On Wednesday, he declined to talk to reporters.
Wallace didn't want to talk about his incident with Noah.
``Ask Joakim about it,'' Wallace said.
``I talked to them both this morning,'' Boylan said, ``and they were laughing about it.''
