Tyler Hansbrough, Festus Ezeli ejected after fight (VIDEO)

An already physical game took a rougher turn after Warriors center Festus Ezeli and Raptors forward Tyler Hansbrough were ejected for fighting during Golden State's 113-89 blowout victory in Toronto on Thursday.

Ezeli and Hansbrough became entangled as they battled for position in the paint, and Ezeli confronted Hansbrough as Toronto prepared to inbound the ball.

Replays showed Ezeli push Hansbrough's neck and face with his right hand, prompting Hansbrough to swipe him away and then charge at him. Hansbrough shoved Ezeli with both hands, and Ezeli retreated before swinging with his arms and missing in retaliation. Finally, officials and members from both teams stepped in to break up the two players.

The NBA league office will review the altercation and determine whether Ezeli and/or Hansbrough should be assessed a fine and/or suspension.
