Things have been getting tense in the NBA as teams jostle for playoff position.
The Warriors and the Thunder got into a shoving match on Monday, and last night two big men threw big punches during the Bulls-Raptors game.
The latest melee started under the hoop after a made basket. Toronto power forward Serge Ibaka gave Bulls center Robin Lopez a little push in the back, Lopez smacked the ball out of Ibaka's hand, and then the punches flew.

Lopez whiffed on his hay-maker, whereas Ibaka's grazed the side off Lopez's head before their teammates separated them. Both players were ejected.
It's been a frustrating season for the Bulls, who are in a fight for the eighth spot in the East. The Raptors started the season hot, but have struggled since losing their star point guard Kyle Lowry.
Toronto ended up winning the game in overtime, 122-120.
