With 1.0 second remaining in the third quarter, the Raptors' Serge Ibaka and the Cavaliers' Marquese Chriss were both going after the ball following a full-court pass in hopes of beating the buzzer to end the quarter.

Ibaka and Marquese Chriss got tangled up and Ibaka flopped to the floor. Ibaka responded by jumping to his feet and putting his arm around Chriss' throat, which led to the two exchanging punches.

Patrick joked on Twitter: "Ibaka should leave the National Basketball Association and join Monday Night Raw".

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

Some fans were furious both players had been ejected after Ibaka had started the fight. It was broken up quick. Which isn't to say that Nick Nurse didn't try, from varied lineup combinations to find a spark, to an early stint of zone defense in the first quarter which briefly seemed to get the Raptors' attention and spurred a run to close the gap.

Love agreed with a suggestion (via cleveland.com) that Cleveland's dominance over Toronto in recent playoff series might have been a factor, with Ibaka possibly releasing some pent-up frustration.
