The end of the Milwaukee Bucks versus the Washington Wizards game probably would have been inconsequential. Neither team is likely to be a true NBA playoff threat. However, tempers got heated in the final minute of the game and Monta Ellis was fouled hard on a drive to the basket. The foul may or may not have been intentional, but Brandon Jennings of the Bucks made the decision to be judge, jury, and executioner right on the spot.
After Ellis went down hard, Jennings shoved Bradley Beal - the person who Jennings thought committed the foul - to the ground hard. Both teams scuffled, and ejections ensued. Jennings may be hit with a suspension, though, to go along with his ejection. His actions were completely outside the realm of the game. While the contact between Beal, Trevor Booker (who actually sent Ellis to the ground), and Ellis may have been over the top, their actions were in the course of the action. A play at the hoop.
Jennings, on the other hand, came in after the fact and would be the first one to be suspended if suspensions are handed down. You watch the video. You be the judge.
