Cavs' Donovan Mitchell, Grizzlies' Dillon Brooks ejected after brouhaha breaks out

Feb 3, 2023

A shot downstairs led to some pushing and shoving between the Memphis Grizzlies and Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night.

Dillon Brooks appeared to strike Donovan Mitchell below the belt, leading the Cavs guard to launch the basketball at him from point-blank range.

It's unclear if punches were thrown, but the two wrestled each other to the floor, however not before fellow players and coaches tried to separate the two.

Both players were ejected from the game.

The game had been physical all night, and words were exchanged again a few minutes later. But Cavs head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said he didn't want to get involved in the Grizzlies' "games."
