Serge Ibaka Fights Marquese Chriss as Raptors Face Cavs

Getty									Serge Ibaka #9 of the Toronto Raptors fouls Tobias Harris #34 of the LA Clippers

With the third quarter winding down Monday night in Cleveland, Serge Ibaka chased after Marquese Chriss, and the two started throwing haymakers.

Both players had been battling all night long and tempers finally boiled over after both players went for the ball in the third quarter.

Chriss and Ibaka both threw punches at each other, luckily with neither landing solidly, and they were separated quickly and ushered to their respective benches. Both players ended up ejected, and it's safe to assume there'll be additional discipline headed Ibaka's way from the league office.

There was one second left in the third quarter of what became a 126-101 blowout victory for Cleveland when the Raptors tried a full-court heave from under their own basket. Neither player commented on the situation after the match but according to ESPN, a spokesperson for the Raptors explained that Ibaka was upset at what Chriss said while he was laying on the court. "That's pretty much the way the game played out".

He is averaging 15.2 points and 8.1 rebounds per game this season.

Aside from that, the Wine & Gold had their way with the Raptors - canning 18 three-pointers, beating them up on the boards and forcing 20 turnovers on the defensive end.

Cavaliers: Cleveland is 5-4 since the All-Star break. Chriss appeared to say something as Ibaka got up. "I mean, I don't condone fighting at all, but I think if somebody comes at you, you have the right to defend yourself", Cavs Coach Larry Drew said. G Matthew Dellavedova (concussion) missed his second straight game. I thought defensively he did a really good job. We don't want to lose one of our guys for incidents like that.
