We don’t see many actual fights in the NBA anymore.
The “Malice at the Palace” in Detroit during the 2004-05 season had a lot to do with that. Every now and then we see a minor scuffle, such as what took place between the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night.
But we saw a legit fight Tuesday night in Toronto when Raptors forward Serge Ibaka and Chicago Bulls center Robin Lopez threw big punches at each other after a made basket.
Ibaka and Lopez both were ejected from the game, and it’s possible each player will face further discipline — a suspension, fine or both — from the NBA.
