CHICAGO, IL - APRIL: Joakim Noah #13 of the Chicago Bulls passes the ball against the Washington Wizards …

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Washington Wizards coach Randy Wittman says things ''got out of hand'' when Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah got into a shouting match with a Wizards security official during the Bulls' shootaround ahead of Game 3 in the teams' first-round series.

Said Wittman: ''That's got to be something from our side that shouldn't happen.''

The Chicago Sun Times reported that Wittman and Wizards staffer Jackie Miles swore at each other following the Bulls' shootaround Friday morning. The paper said Miles was trying to get Noah off the court before Noah was ready to leave.

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau called the incident ''much ado about nothing.''
