Emotions finally boiled over Friday night in Washington, D.C.
Following a bucket from Nene early in the fourth quarter, both he and Jimmy Butler exchanged shoves and got into each other's faces. Nene then grabbed Butler's head before the two were separated.
After officials reviewed the scuffle, Nene was ejected from the game. He finished with 10 points, four rebounds and three assists. Jimmy Butler received a technical foul. The next possession Butler drained a 3-pointer to give the Bulls a five-point lead.
