Utah’s Ricky Rubio played some tough defense on Minnesota’s Jeff Teague that caused him to miss a shot. Teague thought a foul should have been called on the play and took it out on Rubio.
As Rubio was taking the ball to the other end of the court Teague decided to bodycheck him into the seats. A group conversation between both teams followed and when the dust settled Teague was ejected.
The two sides weren’t finished discussing the matter and as Rubio stepped up to shoot the foul shot for the flagrant foul, things popped off again. Jae Crowder and Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau exchanged words and were both given technical fouls.
Just your typical night of hockey during a basketball game, minus throwing actual punches.
