The 2020 NBA Playoffs are off to a flying start, and we’ve seen a balanced set of results so far. There are the Celtics, who’ll sweep the Sixers if they win Game 4. Moreover, the Magic upset the Bucks in Game 1 but faced defeat in Game 2. During an intense third matchup of the series, two players let their emotions get the better of them, which led to double-ejections!

The Bucks sent out a strong statement in Game 2 and wanted to maintain the momentum in the third game. Giannis and the team got off to a flying start, and a scuffle broke out during the second quarter. 

The Bucks gained a clear lead in the second quarter, and the Magic looked to retaliate. When Nikola Vucevic attempted a jumper with about five minutes on the clock, Bucks’ Marvin Williams and Magic’s James Ennis III were contesting for the rebound, and things took off pretty quickly from there.

A quick fight broke out on the court, but thankfully, an official stepped in before things could get any worse. Ennis had his sight locked on Williams, and the latter too had the same aggressive behavior towards his opponent. 

The benches of both teams quickly emptied and everyone rushed on to the scene to break the fight. Both players were ejected from the game for their vile actions on the court.  Following this incident, NBA veterans Jared Dudley and Kendrick Perkins put forth their views on Twitter.
