The Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks got in a scuffle on Friday night at Staples Center. The incident was a nasty one for sure and it resulted in a couple of players being thrown out of the game. After the game, Lakers coach Luke Walton wasn't a happy man.

It all escalated after Malcolm Brogdon of the Bucks fouled Nick Young on a layup attempt at the end of the third quarter. Young was quick to let Brogdon know what he thought of the foul on him, and Bucks center Greg Monroe immediately came to defend his teammate. A couple of Laker players reacted quickly as well, and it resulted in D'Angelo Russell of L.A.

pushing Monroe in the back, Monroe shoving Brandon Ingram, and an employee from the Bucks grabbing Ingram. Monroe and Russell were automatically thrown out of the game, while Young was handed a technical foul, but since it was his second tech of the game, he had to exit.

The Lakers ended up losing the game
