Magic Guard Arron Afflalo Ejected After Trying To Punch Nemanja Bjelica

Magic's Arron Afflalo put in a headlock after taking wild swing at Timberwolves Nemanja Bjelica

A insane fight broke out in the second quarter of the Magic-Timberwolves game on Tuesday night. The altercation ended with Afflalo hitting Bjelica with a punch.

The chaos came in the second quarter of Tuesday night's game, after the Timberwolves inbounded from their own baseline.

The Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Clippers almost got into a fight on Monday night after their game.

Both players were given technical fouls, the second for each, and ejected.

Bjelica appears to push into Afflalo from behind, which led to shoving, followed by a big swing by Afflalo, the 10-year veteran.

UPDATE: Afflalo did not speak to reporters after the game.

Bjelica had two points and one rebound.

The NBA's wild week continued on Tuesday as the Orlando Magic and the Minnesota Timberwolves had to be separated after Arron Afflalo threw a haymaker at Nemanja Bjelica, who immediately put Afflalo in a headlock. We've heard that some of the newer refs aren't talking with players as much, and perhaps that hasn't let guys blow off steam throughout the course of the game and they're taking it out on each other.
