Wizards had the momentum and Nene killed it with stupidity. And Jimmy made a jumper! Huge. Now CLOSE!

Nene just got ejected for head butting Jimmy Butler & grabbing him by the neck. The way this game was(n't) called, that was bound to happen

Nene just looked like he was ready to choke Jimmy Butler. So there's that.
