On Thursday night during the third quarter, Brooks missed a layup on the floor and initiated the fight by hitting Mitchell in the groin area, the release said. Mitchell then "escalated the situation" by throwing the ball and pushing Brooks.

Brooks was given a Flagrant Foul 2 and ejected, while Mitchell was awarded a technical foul and was also ejected from the game.

The Cavaliers ultimately won the game 128-113.
