(Newser) – Well that's one way to make sure you're guarding someone closely enough. Things got heated between Phoenix Mercury guard Diana Taurasi and Minnesota Lynx guard/forward Seimone Augustus in last night's playoff game, as the two got into an off-the-ball scrum, and started arguing, with Taurasi bumping Augustus' chest, ESPN and The Big Lead report. But as the referee rushed over to assess fouls, Taurasi made nice by kissing Augustus on the cheek.

Both women were assessed a personal foul anyway—"What did I do?" a smiling Taurasi asked, according to KTAR. The commentators noted that the two have known each other since they were children. The timing of the fouls has led a few outlets to report that foul was for the kiss itself.
