Marquese Chriss suspended one game for altercation with Serge Ibaka

Toronto's Serge Ibaka and Cleveland's Marquese Chriss were ejected for throwing punches near the end of the third period.

Chriss and Raptors forward Serge Ibaka were ejected late in the third quarter as Cleveland hosted Toronto.

In announcing the suspension, the league said that Ibaka's discipline was "based on his instigation of the physical altercation, throwing a punch at Chriss, and his prior history of fighting during National Basketball Association games" and that Chriss' punishment "was based on throwing a punch at Ibaka".

Ibaka was battling Chriss for positioning to receive a full-court pass with one second remaining in the quarter. "We don't want that". McCaw appeared in three games with the Cavaliers earlier this season.

"I just saw some stuff building up. An altercation happened very fast". "It was broken up quick and that's usually how it goes".

Love agreed with a suggestion (via cleveland.com) that Cleveland's dominance over Toronto in recent playoff series might have been a factor, with Ibaka possibly releasing some pent-up frustration.

Sexton's chemistry with Kevin Love and Cedi Osman is getting better and better, too.

"I don't condone fighting at all but I think if somebody comes at you, you have the right to defend yourself", Drew told Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal after Monday's 126-101 victory.

Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Kiki Vandeweghe is known to take prior history into account, and even if he was to ignore the recent events, he's also had his share of extra-physical moments as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Orlando Magic, making this transgression tough to let go. Chriss will serve his suspension Tuesday night against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Things got heated between the Raptors and Cavaliers on Monday. "If you get in a situation where clearly you're being attacked, your natural instinct is going to be to defend yourself".
