Wrestling moves and a brawl: The fight between the Lakers and the Raptors


OTuesday evening on LA Lakers beat the Toronto Raptors 110-101 but the big talking point of the game was a brawl which saw players on both sides kicked out.

Towards the end of the first quarter, the Toronto-born Toronto forward OG Anunoby was assaulted by a Lakers guard Dennis schroder and he didn’t react kindly to what could have been a dangerous incident.

Anunoby caught Schroder and appeared to knock him down with a wrestling style grip, although the German Guard may have taken full advantage of it.

Both players’ teammates quickly rushed to get involved and officials had to split the teams up before viewing the video footage.

The result was that Anunoby and the Lakers Montrezl Harrell have been kicked out of the game.

It remains to be seen whether the NBA will strike any of those involved with an additional penalty.
