Iowa Energy forward Jarnell Stokes and guard Kalin Lucas were ejected for fighting each other during a NBA Development League game on Tuesday night.
The fight broke out after a timeout was called with Iowa, the D-League affiliate of the Memphis Grizzlies, leading 82-78 in the third quarter.
Near the bench, Stokes and Lucas appeared to start fighting (1:39:47 mark of the video below, left side of video) before they were quickly surrounded by teammates and the coaching staff. It is unclear what started the fight.
Lucas scored 18 points, with five rebounds and five assists in the game, and Stokes, who was drafted in the second round of the 2014 NBA draft by Memphis, had 16 points and eight rebounds. Iowa won the game 124-120.
Stokes has played 16 games with the Grizzlies this season, averaging 2.1 points and 1.3 rebounds.
