O.J. Mayo was fed up last night.
In the midst of yet another Bucks loss, the Milwaukee swingman got tangled up with the Pelicans’ Greg Stiemsma after Stiemsma set a screen on Mayo. Mayo took offense to Stiemsma’s hard screen and extracurricular arm grab and decided he needed to hand out some justice. Spinning around, Mayo hits Stiemsma with a throat punch that sent the Pelicans’ big man flailing.
Mayo was ejected from the game and is likely to face a suspension from the league. His teammate, Ersan Ilyasova, was missing from last night’s game due to serving a suspension for hitting the Sacramento Kings’ Reggie Evans.
