Report: Serge Ibaka’s attack followed Marquese Chriss saying something like ‘Quit that s—'
Serge Ibaka and Marquese Chriss got tangled during the Cavaliers’ win over the Raptors last night. Ibaka fell to the floor. It seemed like a rather innocuous moment.
Then, Ibaka got up and charged Chriss, fists flying.
Ibaka said it was because of something Chriss said, according to Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun. But what could Chriss have said to provoke that?
That sounds more believable than the Cavaliers’ theory, that Ibaka was triggered by losing to them again.
But “quit that [s—]”? That’s such an inoffensive phrase.
Maybe there’s more to this. Or maybe Ibaka was just running that hot.
