Brook Lopez And Trey Lyles Set Off Brawl During Bucks-Kings Game
The Milwaukee Bucks and Sacramento Kings faced off in a tight contest Monday night and things were chippy throughout. With 5.4 seconds left in the fourth quarter, things boiled over and the two teams brawled a bit near the scorer's table.
Milwaukee's Brook Lopez went after Kings forward Trey Lyles and center Domantas Sabonis, who tried to get between the two men. It turned into a huge scrum and even coaches got involved. It all started when Lyles took a shot at Giannis Antetokounmpo and shoved him after a late foul. Lopez came to the aid of his teammate and Lyles gave him a shot to the face, escalating things to the next level.

My favorite part of the entire video is Giannis Antetokounmpo shrugging his shoulders and just walking away frustrated at the 16-second mark. He was clearly pretty annoyed by the whole thing.
Here's another look:
Lopez and Lyles were immediately ejected, and the Bucks closed out the win 133-124.
The NBA league office will be making phone calls to several people tomorrow.
