Between yesterday's Ben Simmons-Kyle Lowry beef and the Houston Rockets' attempt to invade the Clippers' locker room, it's been a insane week in the Association...and it's only two days old.
In 743 career games played over his 10-plus year National Basketball Association career, Orlando Magic shooting guard Arron Afflalo only managed to get whistled for 15 technical fouls and only got ejected twice. Bjelica quickly put Afflalo in a headlock after dodging the punch, and it didn't take long for players from both teams to break up the incident. But at that point Bjelica made a decision to put Afflalo in a headlock just to be safe.
Bjelica had two points and a rebounds in four minutes of action.
Arron Afflalo (l.) and Nemanja Bjelica (r.) got into a fight Tuesday night during a matchup between the Orlando Magic and Minnesota Timberwolves. Both of them should also expect a hefty fine from the league. "But he took a swing at me, and I was just trying to protect myself, first of all, and to calm him down because he was wild". What do you want me to do? The rest of the game was played cleanly.
