Knicks center Robin Lopez was ejected during the third quarter of Friday night's game after throwing a punch at Clippers point guard Chris Paul. Here is the play in question:

It should be noted that Paul managed to land a shot to the face of Jose Calderon earlier in the quarter. Lopez had also been feuding with Clippers center DeAndre Jordan prior to the incident. Kristaps Porzingis, Calderon and Carmelo Anthony were pretty heated during the official replay, which lasted an eternity.
We can only assume Paul Pierce retreated to the nearest wheelchair during the fracas.
