Brook Lopez (Milwaukee Bucks) suffered the first ejection of his 15-year NBA career following a scuffle with Gary Trent Jr, whose headband he ripped off. The veteran also tangled with OG Anunoby.
The incident at Milwaukee’s Fiserv Forum, which escalated into a melee between the two teams, occurred with a little over six minutes remaining in the game.
Toronto Raptors‘ Anunoby, along with the teams assistant coach were given technical fouls, while the Bucks’ Brook Lopez was ejected following two technical fouls.
“I can’t expect refs to get it right if they’re not going to get it right during the game. Why are they going to get it right with any other decision?” Lopez protested after the game.
The Bucks ended up winning the game 130-122 with Spaniard Juancho Hernangomez playing seven minutes scoring two points: one rebound and one block.
In the game between the Brooklyn Nets and San Antonio Spurs, Markieff Morris and Jeremy Sochan were also the protagonists of another scuffle.
