It appears as if NBA players were in a fighting mood yesterday, as on more than one occasion a game ended in a near fight that carried on off the court.
The first was between Kyle Lowry and Ben Simmons, but the bigger event ended up in Los Angeles between the Rockets and Clippers.

That last one was the closest to the truth, although we’re not sure how “secret” the passageway was. As usual, Woj had the scoop:
