With 30 seconds left in last night’s Bucks win, Brad Beal sent Monta Ellis flying on his way toward the rim. Beal extended a hand to help Monta up, but Brandon Jennings took exception to the foul and pushed Beal from behind. A tussle ensued, and both Beal and Jennings were ejected.

Jennings explained why he reacted the way he did after the game: “With 30 some seconds left, I know a team never wants to give up an easy basket, but in that type of situation I feel like you should just wrap the guy up instead of just pushing him or fouling him once he’s in the air.

“I was just trying to protect my teammate. I didn’t think I was going to get kicked out for it,” Jennings said. “When you see a nasty fall, your first [instinct] is ‘Watch out, everyone get out of the way.’”
