Serge Ibaka Marquese Chriss fight Raptors vs Cavs

Serge Ibaka and Marquese Chriss traded blows on the court as the National Basketball Association clash between Toronto Raptors and Cleveland Cavaliers descended into chaos on Monday night. While Chriss' back was turned, Ibaka charged at him, attacked him from behind, grabbed him by the throat, pushed him against the stanchion and threw a punch that didn't land. Ibaka went to the floor hard after the Raptors attempted a lengthy outlet pass, when Chriss appeared to utter something while Ibaka was down on the hardwood.

The fight occurred with 0:01 remaining in the third quarter on Monday night. He is averaging 15.2 points and 8.1 rebounds per game this season.

Led by Kawhi Leonard, the Raptors are confident of going all the way in the east and then maybe even uprooting the Warriors when it comes to the National Basketball Association finals (if the Warriors make it this time).

The Raptors, showing signs of being exhausted in their third straight road game, struggled throughout the game.

The Cavaliers connected on six 3-pointers in the third quarter and made 18 of 41 for the game. Ibaka would lose about $149,000 for every game he misses - tacking losses up to $745,000 for a five-game suspension. F Larry Nance Jr.

Ibaka already has prior incidents in his record, getting into physical altercations with Chicago Bulls center Robin Lopez in 2017 and Miami Heat forward James Johnson previous year - both taking place in recent memory, making him a repeat offender.

"I didn't see much of it, to be honest", Nurse said.

"It didn't seem like our energy was where theirs was", he said.

"Not just with him but throughout the game with a lot of guys".
