Raptors' Serge Ibaka and Cavaliers' Marquese Chriss ejected after brawl

Raptors' Ibaka, Cavaliers' Chriss get heated and throw punches

With the third quarter winding down Monday night in Cleveland, Serge Ibaka chased after Marquese Chriss, and the two started throwing haymakers.

Things between the two got tense after they both went after the ball in hopes of beating the buzzer at the end of the third quarter.

Chriss and Ibaka both threw punches at each other, luckily with neither landing solidly, and they were separated quickly and ushered to their respective benches.

Raptors coach Nick Nurse also saw little of the incident and was keen to ensure that Ibaka was unharmed, but he was frustrated to see the center get involved in an incident that is likely to prompt a suspension.

Ibaka hit the court hard in the second quarter after being fouled by Chriss after scoring on a rebound.

While Ibaka was lying on the court, Chriss shot him a look and may have said something that the Raptors forward found inflammatory. "That's pretty much the way the game played out".

The Cavs managed to beat the Raptors handsomely tonight, as the the game ended 126-101.

A day after committing 21 turnovers in a 21-point win over Miami, Toronto committed 20 turnovers in a 25-point loss to Cleveland.

Quotable - Coach Larry Drew, on his rookie point guard's performance on Monday ... The Raptors veteran would lose $149,000 per game if he were to miss any matches. The heave was off-target and flew over Ibaka and Chriss.

Sexton, who is averaging 17.9 points per game since the All-Star break, impressed throughout the night, finishing with a game-high 28 points (on 10-for-18 shooting), connecting on four of his seven 3-point attempts - tying a career-high in made 3-pointers. I really didn't get to see it until the final five seconds'.
