Mo Wagner, Killian Hayes, and Hamidou Diallo made sure to amp up Wednesday’s game between the Orlando Magic and the Detroit Pistons, which normally wouldn’t attract many fans.
Hayes was beating Wagner down the court for a loose ball when things took an unexpected turn and the Magic big man pushed the Pistons guard out of bounds and into his own bench.
The rest of Hayes’ Detroit teammates rush to his aid, and Diallo charges up the court to get in Wagner’s face. Then, Hayes throws a blow that seems to stun Wagner for a moment.

The officials handled this situation really effectively in the end. Wagner was given a Flagrant 2 foul, resulting in ejection, while Hayes and Diallo were also removed for contributing to the escalation of the situation. Wagner and Hayes may face suspension and/or fines as a result of this occurrence.
