Video: Jeff Teague gets ejected after shoving Dennis Schroder
Things got testy in Oklahoma City on Tuesday night, and Minnesota Timberwolves starting point guard Jeff Teague and Thunder backup point guard Dennis Schroder were right in the middle of it.
After Timberwolves small forward Andrew Wiggins elbowed Thunder big man Nerlens Noel on a dunk attempt, Noel had to be taken on a stretcher off the court as he was visibly unconscious.
That’s when Dennis Schroder lost his mind, as he started jawing back and forth with Andrew Wiggins, Jeff Teague and other players on the Timberwolves. Schroder didn’t like the way Wiggins went in for the dunk by leading with his elbow.
Teague ultimately had enough of Schroder and shoved the German guard twice. He was ejected, while Schroder only got one technical.

Jeff Teague and Dennis Schroder were teammates with the Atlanta Haws for a few seasons. This altercation in OKC pretty much confirms the rumors that the two didn’t like each other back then. Schroder was Teague’s backup in Atlanta.
Teague finished with eight points and five assists in 25 minutes before getting ejected. The Timberwolves are playing their first game since Tom Thibodeau was fired on Sunday. Ryan Saunders, the son of the late Flip Saunders, is the new coach in Minnesota.
