Magic guard Arron Afflalo throws punch at Timberwolves forward, both get ejected

Magic guard Arron Afflalo throws punch at Timberwolves forward, both get ejected

Bjelica had two points and a rebounds in four minutes of action.

This comes as no surprise, but is surely heartening to the perturbed Timberwolves fans who were wondering why Afflalo wasn't suspended by the league office on Wednesday.

Afflalo reacted by throwing a massive right-handed haymaker, barely missing Bjelica.

Both players were ejected with their second technical. Bjelica will most likely face a smaller punishment for the simple fact that he probably could have thrown some punches at Afflalo while he had him caught in the headlock, but chose not to.

"It's an unfortunate incident, just competitive nature, an isolated incident", said Afflalo. "An isolated incident. I'm very proud of my teammates". "I just want to say I think I did the right thing".

Apparently, there was no history between the two players before the scuffle. But that happens all the time. "I'll try to handle it a little bit better next time".

The altercation began with Afflalo shoving Bjelica, and later on in the fight, Afflalo threw a punch that missed wildly.
