After getting into a scuffle at mid-court toward the beginning of the game when Aaron Brooks, John Henson, Jimmy Butler and O.J. Mayo got into it, the two teams got chippy again late in the fourth.
With the Bucks trying to steal a game in Chicago, they tried to match the Bulls in intensity and fought hard for every loose ball.
The last scuffle came between Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic and Bucks center Zaza Pachulia as both men were on the ground fighting for a loose ball.
Well apparently Mirotic didn’t like something Pachulia did and proceeded to shove the Bucks center while they were on the ground.
Well Pachulia didn’t like that either, so he shove Mirotic back and all of a sudden everyone was jumping in the fracas to prevent anything else from happening.
In the first scuffle, five players were already given technical fouls. With the NBA watching these games closely in the playoffs, neither team can afford to have any players suspended for fighting or in this case shoving.
Luckily it was nothing more than a few light pushes, but the tone of this series is definitely getting more physical by the game.
Luckily Taj Gibson didn’t floor anyone with elbows this time.
