Miami Heat’s Caleb Martin pushes Raptors player into stands and sparks brawl – before both players are ejected

During Art Miami Heat112-109 victory over Art Toronto Raptors the benches cleared as the fight spilled over into the front row of the crowd.

It all started with 7:46 left in the third quarter when Caleb Martin and Christian Calaca battled for a rebound after a missed 3-pointer by Toronto’s Pascal Siakam.

Martin was fouled on the play, Koloko went to the floor and Martin stepped on him as the Raptors rookie quickly jumped to his feet.

A few seconds later, Martin and Koloko got mixed up again. Martin appeared to corner Coloco in the seats, which were overturned. Players from both teams quickly rushed to the spot, which was only a few feet away from the Heat bench.

The game was stopped for several minutes while the umpires reviewed the play, giving crews time to mop up the large amount of spilled drinks and clean up the area.

Martin and Kalaka, in addition to the suspensions, received technical whistles.

“There were a lot of plays before that,” Martin said. “It was a cool game.”

Koloko said: “I just stood up for myself and I’m being kicked out. That’s what happened.”

Toronto coach Nick Nurse said he expects the NBA to take a closer look at what happened.

“There were a few people in that thing that probably shouldn’t have been,” said the Nurse.
