Drew Gooden, Jordan Hill ejected during Lakers-Wizards fight (Video)

Drew-Gooden-Nick-Young-fightA game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Washington Wizards briefly turned ugly on Friday night, and the end result was several technical fouls and two player ejections.

Wizards forward Drew Gooden and Lakers guard Nick Young got tangled up while fighting for a rebound with roughly two minutes remaining in the game, and Gooden yanked Young’s arm and looked like he was trying to tear it off. Gooden lost his balance and fell to the floor, and Young went over to confront him.

Young gave Gooden a mild shove before Wizards big man Marcin Gortat came over to prevent the situation from escalating. Lakers forward Jordan Hill took exception to Gortat’s involvement, so he shoved Gortat and put him in a bear hug.

“(Gooden) ended up falling,” Young explained after the game, via the Washington Post. “I ended up getting my adrenaline going and it was over after that. I felt like that was uncalled for right there.”

Gooden and Hill were both assessed Flagrant 2 fouls and ejected from the game. Young also picked up a technical but wasn’t tossed. The Wizards went on to win 117-107, as a sad Lakers season got even sadder.
