Video: PJ Tucker, Dennis Schroder ejected from Rockets vs. Thunder Game 5
Halfway into the third quarter, Schroder was caught red-handed as he hit Tucker in the groin. The latter was setting a pick for James Harden, who was being chased by the Thunder guard.
The Rockets’ burly enforcer wasn’t having any of it, proceeding to headbutt Schroder as he plead his case to the official.
