Serge Ibaka had to be restrained from going after John Wall during a third quarter skirmish between the Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards on Friday.
Things got started when Jonas Valanciunas rammed into Marcin Gortat on the offensive end. He was called for an offensive foul, but the hard contact led to a response from Washington. Bradley Beal went up to Valanciunas, and some players gathered around the situation. Then Wall said something to Ibaka, who reacted by trying to go after the Washington point guard. Ibaka had to be restrained by a coach.

Two technical fouls were called on Washington and one on Toronto, which put the Raptors at the line. DeMar DeRozan made his technical free throw.
That wasn’t the only incident in the game. Earlier, OG Anunoby and Markieff Morris also got into a scuffle.
