OG Anunoby, Montrezl Harrell ejected after Raptors-Lakers scuffle

·1 min read

Toronto Raptors forward OG Anunoby and Los Angeles Lakers forward Montrezl Harrell were promptly ejected from Tuesday's game after a first-quarter scuffle. 

Anunoby got tangled up with Lakers guard Dennis Schröder after driving hard to the basket, where Schröder committed a foul. Both players tried to untangle themselves and Anunoby appeared to inadvertently slam Schröder to the ground, prompting Raptors guard Gary Trent Jr., and Harrell to intervene on behalf of their teammates.

We're not entirely sure why Harrell got ejected, frankly, as he merely tried to intervene between Anunoby and Schroder, in a similar fashion to Trent Jr. 

Trent Jr. at this point is quickly turning into a Raptors folk hero, and his intervention on behalf of Anunoby will certainly continue to endear him to his new fan base.

Tempers flared but nothing more came of the interaction, although we'll be certainly curious to hear from Anunoby, Trent Jr. and all parties involved post-game.
