Between yesterday’s Ben Simmons-Kyle Lowry beef and the Houston Rockets’ attempt to invade the Clippers’ locker room, it’s been a crazy week in the Association…and it’s only two days old. It got a little more interesting on Tuesday night when Arron Afflalo swung at Nemanja Bjelica in the second quarter of Timberwolves-Magic. The two were jawing for a bit and push came to shove when they got tangled up on a rebound attempt.

While it appeared that Afflalo threw the first punch — a pretty solid hook — both he and Bjelica were ejected right away. Who said the NBA wasn’t physical enough?
