CHAOS UNFOLDS IN FIERY NBA SCENE
The Milwaukee Bucks have regained control of their first round series with a 121-107 victory to go up 2-1.
Reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo was once again at his devastating best as he recorded 35 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists.
As good as the win was for the Bucks, it was overshadowed by an incident that unfolded in the second quarter.
With the Bucks in complete control, a rebound battle ensued between Orlando’s James Ennis and Milwaukee’s Marvin Williams.
A push and shove between the two unfolded after a coming together and as officials and staff raced to separate the two men, Ennis swung his right arm to slap Williams’ arm away causing Bucks assistant Darvin Ham to hit the deck.

Both players were ejected from the contest after it was reviewed by officials.
“Upon review from instant replay, it was determined that fighting fouls would be assessed. As per NBA rules, fighting fouls are technical fouls that carry an automatic ejection,” crew chief Marc Davis said post-game.
Game four will take place on Tuesday at 3:30am (AEST) with the Magic looking to level the series up at 2-2.
