Europeans Dzanan Musa and Rodions Kurucs were involved in the final skirmish of the best-of-seven series between the Brooklyn Nets and the Philadelphia 76ers. The Latvian forward got tangled up after a no-call and his European teammate came for support. Both players of the Nets were ejected alongside Greg Monroe and Jonah Bolden of the Sixers.

The 2019 NBA Playoffs opening round series featured many fights, but the last one came with the winner of Game 5 and the advancing side already decided. The 76ers will move forward after prevailing with 4-1 and will face the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Kurucs, 21, finished his rookie NBA campaign with 14 points in 15 minutes. He also tallied seven rebounds, one assist and one steal before his ejection. Musa, 19, scooped one steal in five minutes of action.
