The two got a little too close “ejected,” so I went to the locker room,” Butler said. “I mean, there’s nothing I can do.”
76ers and LA Clippers started the 2019 with the Sixers collecting a 119-113 win marked by weird play and two ejections.
Joel Embiid and Clippers guard Patrick Beverley received offsetting technicals at 9:32 in the fourth quarter.
Avery Bradley and the Sixers’ Jimmy Butler got tied up going for a rebound and pushed each other. They both had to be separated now technicals and ejections were handed out.
“We got too close to one another and the same things happen: some pushing, some shoving, some technical fouls and we got ejected,”
Bradley wasn’t allowed to speak to the media after the game.
