Sendings off, refs and camera men floored in NBA play-off ruckus

The play-off game between the Brroklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers game was overshadowed by a melee in the third quarter of Saturday's heated playoff game.


The fight broke out midway through the third quarter in Brooklyn with local side Nets holding a small lead as Jared Dudley pushed 76ers player Joel Embiid. Philly's Jimmy Butler then got involved by shoving the Nets veteran, before other players got involved in the skirmish. Ben Simmons and Dudley ended up in the first row, before being separated.

For their respective roles in the event, Embiid was given a flagrant foul, while both Dudley and Butler were ejected from what was already a heated fourth game in the best of seven series.

Simmons was later booed on every touch by the home fans helping his 76ers side to 108-112 win to lead the series 3-1.
