Three Players Ejected After Massive Scuffle in Hornets-Magic

Three players were ejected after a huge scuffle broke out in the fourth quarter of the Hornets-Magic matchup on Thursday.

While Charlotte held a 108–83 lead with 7:45 to play, forward Jalen McDaniels fouled Orlando’s R.J. Hampton on a drive to the basket.

Hampton and McDaniels got into it, and players from both teams began to spar.

Orlando’s Robin Lopez and Admiral Schofield were tossed as well as Charlotte’s Montrezl Harrell after a lengthy confrontation.

The game was delayed roughly 10 minutes as referees reviewed video of the tussle. Lopez was booed walking off the court as fans inside the Spectrum Center were on their feet, according to The Charlotte Observer.
