Giannis picked up a foul and the two exchanged some words. Giannis came back and hit him with a headbutt, immediately getting tossed. You’ve got to be worried a bit about the Bucks in the bubble. They’re the favorites to win it all, they’ve been losing games, Giannis has been losing his cool too often. He needs to tame things back and focus on what’s important, not a meaningless game against the Wizards.
