Serge Ibaka and Marquese Chriss fight at Toronto Raptors vs Cleveland Cavaliers

Even with Kawhi Leonard back in the lineup, the best fight Toronto put up in Cleveland was when Serge Ibaka threw a punch at Marquese Chriss.

Less than two minutes into the third quarter, the Cavs used a 7-0 run to get out to an 11-point lead. Ibaka got up from the floor and went after Chriss, putting his hands around Chriss' throat before they began throwing punches.

Knowing he'd be ejected for his violent reaction, Ibaka walked straight to the locker room, while Chriss was also dismissed after the officials reviewed the incident.

Ibaka hit the court hard in the second quarter after being fouled by Chriss after scoring on a rebound.

Before Ibaka, still seething, strode out of the arena without answering to reporters for his sins, he confirmed through a Raptors spokesman that it was what Chriss said to him that set him off. "That's pretty much the way the game played out".

The Raptors are vying for an Eastern Conference win this season, as their team is second in the East now, with a 48-20 record.

Sexton, who is averaging 17.9 points per game since the All-Star break, impressed throughout the night, finishing with a game-high 28 points (on 10-for-18 shooting), connecting on four of his seven 3-point attempts - tying a career-high in made 3-pointers.

Leonard, averaging 27 points this season, hasn't appeared in more than two consecutive games since playing in five straight from January 25 through February 5. "I mean, I don't condone fighting at all, but I think if somebody comes at you, you have the right to defend yourself", Cavs Coach Larry Drew said. I thought defensively he did a really good job. 'We certainly don't want that in the game.
