Jimmy Butler and Avery Bradley got tangled up fighting for position in the 4th quarter of the Sixers win over the Clippers on Tuesday night. Things then took a turn with the two players shoving each other.
Despite the fact that no punches were thrown, both players were ejected.

Butler’s shove was a little high around Bradley’s throat, but there didn’t seem to be an ejectable offense there. In the end it didn’t have any affect on the outcome of the game. The Sixers were leading when the ejections occurred and they won the game 119-113.
