Skirmish breaks out at midcourt in Bulls-Bucks game, four players get technical fouls (VIDEO)


CHICAGO — After an absolutely brutal first quarter that ended with the Bucks leading the Bulls 16-11 (yes, 16-11 after an entire quarter), things started to get interesting in the second quarter.

First, John Henson collided with Aaron Brooks, knocking him to the floor. Then, when Joakim Noah rushed to his teammate’s defense, more players got involved:

Brooks picked up a common foul and Henson, Noah, Jimmy Butler and O.J. Mayo all received offsetting technicals. More importantly, this finally started to feel like a playoff game.
