The New York Knicks power forward (Quincy Acy) lost it for a second late in a 102-91 loss to the Washington Wizards. Star point guard John Wall, who had been lighting up the Knicks all day, ran into Acy in a transition play that admittedly was pretty awkward. But after both fell to the ground briefly, Acy got up and was ready to scrap.
He seemed to be going for the punch but changed his mind and switched up to a shove midway through. Smart move: A direct punch might have drawn Acy a long suspension.
Acy promptly was ejected for a flagrant 2 foul, and Wall made both free throws.
