Brawl quickly erupts after Raptors’ Serge Ibaka goes after Cavaliers’ Marquese Chriss

Raptors' Ibaka, Cavaliers' Chriss get heated and throw punches

Even with Kawhi Leonard back in the lineup, the best fight Toronto put up in Cleveland was when Serge Ibaka threw a punch at Marquese Chriss. No foul was called, but Chriss looked down at Ibaka and said something to him, which set the big man off as he charged Chriss, choking him into the stanchion. The fall seemed to be a harmless one initially, but then Ibaka got to his feet and rushed towards Chriss, to shove him in the back, before holding his neck and throwing down a punch.

Monday's game marked the eighth ejection of Ibaka's 10-year career and the third for Chriss in three seasons.

Knowing he'd be ejected for his violent reaction, Ibaka walked straight to the locker room, while Chriss was also dismissed after the officials reviewed the incident. It was broken up quick. Toronto coach Nick Nurse pulled his starters as the Cavaliers pulled away and the lead reached 27 points with just under a minute to play. To make matters worse, Cleveland shot an impressive 18-for-41 (43.9 percent) from beyond the arc to outscore Toronto 54-33 from long range. "That might have been exactly what it was", Love said.

Calls to the family home, where Catherine's mother Anne and sister Jenny live, were referred to the Lucie Blackman Trust. Fears were growing last night for a young British woman who has been missing for almost a week in Guatemala .

With the loss, the Raptors now sit at a record of 48-20 and are still ranked second in the Eastern Conference.

He is averaging 15.2 points and 8.1 rebounds per game this season.

Sexton led the Cavaliers with 13 first-half points while Leonard had 13 to pace the Raptors. The heave was off-target and flew over Ibaka and Chriss. The Washington product has averaged 7.9 points per game in three National Basketball Association seasons. This has been an ongoing trend for the Raptors, and they'll have to adjust to the fact that this simply isn't Gasol's game, he needs to be used as a playmaker more than as a post-up threat, and when they keep him involved in the right places it helps the team succeed.
