Brook Lopez and his Milwaukee Bucks hosted the conference rival Toronto Raptors Tuesday night in a game pitting two teams going in opposite directions against one another.

With the game close midway through the fourth quarter, Lopez got into it with Raptors wing Gary Trent Jr. after the two got tangled up under the hoop.

As you will see in the video below, Lopez actually took Trent’s headband off and threw into the crowd. It instigated a large-scale brouhaha as things spiraled out of control.

Officials on hand inside Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee took forever to look at the replay before handing Brook Lopez two technicals and running him from the game.

Raptors wing OG Anunoby also received a technical from Bill Kennedy, who couldn’t stop himself from lauging while watching the replay.

Lopez finished the game with 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting as his Bucks won their second consecutive game.
