Twitter reacts to massive brawl in Australia vs. Philippines

Australia met the Philippines for a matchup in Group B of the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers, but the game didn’t go as planned.

During the third quarter, a massive brawl began following a flop and a retaliation. The brouhaha resulted in 13 ejections — including Australia’s Thon Maker of the Milwaukee Bucks — and left the Philippines with three players.

Shortly after, two more Philippines players fouled out. So, with a little less than two minutes remaining in the third quarter, Australia won the game 89-53 by forfeit.

Social media users, whether basketball fans, media or former players, had a wide range of reactions to the madness.
