AROUND THE WEB:

— In a rare NBA occurrence, punches were thrown during the Bulls-Raptors game Tuesday night.

Chicago’s Robin Lopez and Toronto’s Serge Ibaka were both ejected after the physical fight broke out in the third quarter of the game at Air Canada Centre.

It started when Ibaka threw an elbow at Lopez after a shot made by Jimmy Butler. Lopez responded by grabbing the ball out of Ibaka’s hand and tempers exploded.

Lopez threw a punch at Ibaka’s head and Ikaka punched back, slightly swiping Ibaka.

Teammates and coaches rushed to calm the chaos and pulled the players apart. Both were immediately tossed from the game.

“What happened is we were playing physical basketball and he got frustrated,” Ibaka said after the game. “That thing happened where you just start pushing each other, like always happens when there’s contact, and then he throws a punch. You know, like a man, I had to defend myself. I’m not just going to be out there and watch a man like him punch me and just walk away. I had to defend myself.”

Lopez also declined to take blame for the incident.

“Things got heated, we exchanged a few words and it kind of went from there,” Lopez said. “I’m not too surprised [that it escalated]. It happens sometimes.”

As far as punishment from the league, Lopez believes he will be suspended, but Ibaka doesn’t think he should get the same punishment since he didn’t throw the first punch.

“I just hope the league will do a better job to watch, because if that was me, we would not get to that point, punching and stuff,” Ibaka said. “I know it’s basketball, sometimes we can talk trash or push each other. Punching like that, there’s no room, I think. I want to play basketball, I don’t want to get suspended. The fact that he’s talking to me first and like a man I respond and protect myself.”

As Lopez said, “we’ll see.”
