Things got a little chippy in the final four minutes. John Henson committed a hard foul on Lance Stephenson that resulted in a flagrant-1 call, as well as a technical for getting in Stephenson’s face after the play.
Then with 5.5 seconds left and the Bucks up by 10, Henson came from behind to block a Matt Barnes shot out-of-bounds. Henson then got in Barnes’ face for a short time. Both players received technical fouls and Henson was ejected.
Even though Barnes hadn’t been tossed, he took off for the tunnel with some Bucks coaches and staff members in hot pursuit. Nothing ended up happening and the game ended with a Bucks victory.
Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 15 points, 11 assists and six rebounds.
