Meanwhile, at the Target Center in Minneapolis, the beating broke out in the third quarter of a violent Friday night. Austin Rivers (Minnesota) confronted Mo Bamba (Orlando), who was sitting on the Magic’s bench, after a strong exchange of words. The two clashed on the track, while teammates from both teams came running and security members tried to separate them.

There were five expelled and there are already more severe sanctions for the basketball players who launched kicks in the style of the Ecuadorian Marlon Chito Vera, the best exponent of mixed martial arts on the world famous UFC circuit.

The NBA punished center Mo Bamba (Magic) with a four-game suspension on Saturday and guard Austin Rivers (Timberwolves) with another three for unleashing a violent altercation in Friday’s game, which ended with five players thrown from the court.

In its statement, the NBA detailed that Bamba tried to confront Rivers again on the way to the locker room, where he also pushed a security element.

The league also took action against Magic point guard Jalen Suggs and Timberwolves power forward Jaden McDaniels for engaging in the altercation “as non-peacemakers, which escalated the situation.”

Suggs, who grabbed Rivers by the throat and threw him onto the court, was suspended for one game and McDaniels fined $20,000. The fifth ejected for the incident, Taurean Prince (Timberwolves), received no punishment. (D)
