The Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green and the Washington Wizards' Bradley Beal were ejected late in the second quarter of Friday night's game after the two were involved in an altercation on the court. The incident started when Beal drove toward the basket and had his shot blocked by Green with 23 seconds left in the half. The Wizards maintained possession, but as the two jostled for position in the paint, Beal smacked Green in the face from behind, and Green, in turn, grabbed Beal, and the two got locked up. While wrapped around each other, they backpedaled near the fans in the front row underneath the Wizards' basket and eventually fell to the hardwood. Members of both teams as well as officials, coaches and even a fan tried to break up the melee. Two Wizards players -- Markieff Morris, who was inactive and in street clothes as he recovers from hernia surgery, and Carrick Felix -- left the bench during the scuffle and are likely to receive a one-game suspension. It wasn't immediately clear whether punches were thrown. "I don't know what I'm supposed to do if someone hits you twice," Green told ESPN as he left the locker room at halftime. "Man, you're taught as a kid not to allow that. What was I supposed to do?" Green emerged from the scuffle with his jersey ripped, and the two continued to jaw back and forth at each other from their respective benches.
