Wizards big man Moe Wagner has a knack for getting under the skin of his opponents and on Tuesday night it led to the reigning MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo, getting ejected.
Wagner first took a charge on Antetokounmpo and the two were separated. But Antetokounmpo tracked Wagner down and headbutted him.

Not surprisingly, the refs tossed Antetokounmpo after watching the replay. That will likely cost him some money and possibly a suspension as well. Milwaukee's final regular season game is Thursday against the Grizzlies. They will then begin the postseason as the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.

With Antetokounmpo out, the Bucks were left playing without most of their best players. Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton were already not playing.
