The playoff series between the Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks heated up in a hurry Monday night when the two teams scuffled early in the second quarter.

It began when Aaron Brooks attempted to draw a charge on John Henson in the open court. Henson bowled over Brooks, who was called for a blocking foul, and stood over the Bulls point guard. Joakim Noah and Jimmy Butler quickly rushed over to Henson as both teams convened at half court before being separated. Noah had words for Henson, while Butler and Bucks shooting guard OJ Mayo got in each other's faces.

Henson, Mayo, Butler and Noah all were assessed technical fouls. No one from either side appeared to leave the bench during the scrum.
