The Bulls and Thunder may not be rivals, but they certainly looked like it on Monday night, judging by what happened in the game at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Words were exchanged at the end of a play in the third quarter, and Kris Dunn shoved Russell Westbrook. Brodie, as you might imagine, shoved him right back. A number of other players then jumped in, including Robin Lopez and Jerami Grant, and a brief scuffle broke out.
All four of those aforementioned players — Westbrook, Lopez, Grant and Dunn — were hit with technical fouls for their roles in the heated altercation. As for Lopez, he was later ejected anyway, in a separate incident.
