A few seconds later, as a shot from Kelly Oubre Jr. went up, Green began boxing out Beal. As they battled for position, Beal pops Green in the face.

Understandably, Green was not thrilled about being hit in the face, and wrapped up Beal. All tangled up, the two then fell into the first row of the crowd along the baseline.

Was anyone else involved?

As expected, a number of player arrived to try and pull Green and Beal apart.

However, Oubre Jr. appears to throw punches as he gets in the scrum. His first effort looks to connect with his own teammate, John Wall.

He appears to then make contact with Klay Thompson as well.

Did anyone leave the bench?

Well, kind of. As you can see here, someone on the Wizards bench begins to come over to the scrum, but is quickly pulled back. He didn’t actually do anything, but neither did C.J. McCollum when he left the bench for a second during a preseason game, and he was suspended.

What was the aftermath?

Most notably, Green’s jersey was ripped to shreds in the scuffle.

Beal also got into a verbal bout with a fan on his way to the locker room.

And then, of course, both Beal and Green (who already had one technical) were ejected from the game.

Fines, at least, and possibly suspensions could be coming from the league soon, though those decisions likely won’t be made until Saturday at the earliest.
