Nene Ejected After Butting Heads Then Choking Jimmy Butler

Nene, Jimmy Butler

Things got heated in the fourth quarter between the Wizards and Bulls. Washington’s Brazilian big man, Nene, and Chicago’s 3&D wing, Jimmy Butler, quite literally butted heads following a slight elbow from Nene after he scored a layup. Butler stood cranium to cranium with the bigger Brazilian before Nene grabbed him around the neck and appeared to choke him before taking a swipe at his head.

Teammates jumped in, but Nene was ejected after both initiating the dust and then escalating it when the two locked horns (there’s probably a Bulls joke in there).
