Players and referees had to restrain Giannis Antetokounmpo from going after Brooklyn Nets forward Donta Hall on Tuesday.
During the second quarter, Antetokounmpo and Hall were battling for position underneath the basket when Hall, an undrafted rookie who signed with the Nets for the bubble, knocked the Bucks star to the ground.
Antetokounmpo got up quickly and stormed over to Hall before being restrained by refs and players.
An alternate angle of the incident showed Antetokounmpo tell a referee, “I’m gonna f— him up.”
Antetokounmpo, however, cooled down immediately and walked away.
