The unsuspected turn of events at the onset of the San Francisco game left spectators and players bewildered. Within just ninety seconds at the Chase Center, pandemonium ensued on the court, setting the stage for a game that would be remembered for its unexpected twists and turns.

The spark that ignited the turmoil was a heated confrontation between Klay Thompson and Jaden McDaniels. The intensity escalated rapidly as jerseys were torn and players grappled with each other. Amidst the escalating tension, the towering figure of Rudi Gobert, standing at an imposing 216 centimeters, attempted to play the role of peacemaker.

However, his efforts inadvertently triggered a frenzy as other players from both teams rushed into the fray. In the blink of an eye, Draymond Green found himself atop the shoulders of the frenzied Frenchman. Green, known for his aggressive demeanor, executed a wrestling maneuver, locking the Minnesota center in a chokehold for a tense ten seconds.

The situation reached a boiling point, prompting Coach Steve Kerr to leap off the bench and vehemently instruct Green to release Gobert. The crowd, comprising referees and coaching staff, intervened swiftly to disentangle Green from Gobert's neck.

In the aftermath, referees acted promptly, expelling not just the initial instigators but also the fiery Draymond Green. The consequences proved advantageous for the visiting team, as the absence of star player Steph Curry hindered the Golden State "warriors," paving the way for Minnesota's triumph with a final score of 104:101.

The ejections reshaped the dynamics of the game, underscoring the impact of player choices on the overall outcome of this closely contested NBA showdown. The standout performers of the match were Towns, delivering an impressive 33 points, and Edwards contributing an additional 20.

On the home front, Podziemski led the scoring with 23 points, narrowly surpassing Saric by two points, as reported by RT Agency. The unexpected drama not only altered the course of the game but left an indelible mark on the spectators' memories of this high-stakes matchup in San Francisco.

We haven't seen a fight like this on the NBA courts for a long time, we hope that it won't happen again in the future because the basketball court is not the place for acts of this kind.
