Greg Stiemsma set a screen on O.J. Mayo in the first quarter of Friday’s Bucks – Pelicans game. Mayo, the 6’4″ guard, did not appreciate the screen and let the 6’11” center know by throwing a punch/forearm/shove at Stiemsma’s throat. (Maybe it was meant for his head, but the height different came into play…) Replays were reviewed by referees and Mayo was given a flagrant-2 and ejected.
Texas inquired with Brad Stevens of the Celtics, too.
Not mincing words.
