Video: Bulls, Thunder get into brawl starting with Kris Dunn shoving Russell Westbrook
The Chicago Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder got into a heated fight Monday night in OKC, and it all started when Bulls point guard Kris Dunn and Thunder star point guard Russell Westbrook got into it.

Double technical fouls were issued to Jerami Grant and Robin Lopez and Russell Westbrook and Kris Dunn. No ejections were issued on that play, but Lopez was ejected later in the game after standing over Grant on a play.

It seems that Russell Westbrook is always getting into some type of scuffle every night now. Kris Dunn is a rugged player, so he’s not going to back down from Westbrook. Lopez is a solid veteran and he’s going to look out for his younger teammates. Lopez always like to get down, too. Two years ago, Lopez got into a huge brawl with Toronto Raptors big man Serge Ibaka.
