Things got chippy late in Thursday’s 140-99 blowout win by the Boston Celtics against the Milwaukee Bucks.
With 1:25 left in the fourth quarter, Thanasis Antetokounmpo and Blake Griffin got into a skirmish in which Antetokounmpo head-butted Griffin because of a hard foul. The 30-year-old was called for a flagrant-2 and was ejected from the game.
Understandably, emotions were running high for the Bucks amid the demoralizing showing in front of their home fans at Fiserv Forum. The 41-point loss ties for the largest defeat of the season for Milwaukee.
At 55-22, the Bucks still maintain a two-game lead over the Celtics (53-24) for first place in the Eastern Conference.
