Monday night featured a throwdown between two of the league’s best teams. It was a close battle, but the Milwaukee Bucks ended up running away with it in the end.
However, the contest ended in fireworks as the Sacramento Kings got into a little tussle at the end of the game.
In the closing seconds, Trey Lance fouled Giannis Antetokounmpo for no real reason. Brook Lopez didn’t like that one bit and got in Lyles’ face.

During the postgame press conference, head coach Mike Brown was asked about the late-game scuffle.
Although the Kings kind of started it all, Brown sent a rather spicy message to the Bucks.
"I don't know what happened, but we ain't taking no s*** from nobody."

Usually Mike Brown is on the quiet side, but he clearly felt the need to speak up about what transpired on the court.
If anything, this is exactly what Sacramento needed to hear from its head coach.
Considering the Kings are a young team and fighting for a top seed in the Western Conference, this message could be enough to fire them up for the next several games.
With that said, keep an eye on the Kings for now, as they are making some serious noise in their conference. Look for them to get back on track Wednesday night as they take on the Chicago Bulls.
