  • Serge Ibaka Toronto Raptors

Toronto Raptors center Serge Ibaka and Cleveland Cavaliers forward Marquese Chriss were ejected from Monday night's game after getting into a physical altercation.

Ibaka and Chriss both went for the ball following a full-court pass as they tried to beat the buzzer to end the quarter. Ibaka leaped up and went after his antagonist, who was walking away, grabbing Chriss near the throat and pushing him into the basket stanchion before the two threw punches at each other, few of which appeared to land. A battle for position between the Raptors' Serge Ibaka and the Cavaliers' Marquese Chriss suddenly turned into a brawl on Monday, with the two players ejected from the game.

Earlier in the game, Ibaka had hit the court hard in the second quarter after being fouled by Chriss following a rebound. It was broken up quick.

Neither player was available for comment following the game. Entering the final frame of the contest, the Cavs lead the Raptors, 91-77. "That might have been exactly what it was", Love said. "Especially against a real good team at home".

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton (2) drives against Toronto Raptors guard Jeremy Lin (17) in the fourth quarter at Quicken Loans Arena. "That's pretty much the way the game played out".

Leonard, averaging 27.1 points going into the game, hasn't appeared in more than two consecutive games since playing in five straight from January 25 through February 5.

After notching 27 points against the Heat on Friday night in Miami, Collin Sexton stayed hot on Monday, leading both squads with 28 points - going 10-of-18 from the floor, including 4-of-7 from long-range to go with four boards and five assists.

The Raptors, showing signs of being exhausted in their third straight road game, struggled throughout the game.
