DeMar DeRozan and Jimmy Butler went toe-to-toe on Tuesday in a matchup of two of the NBA’s top shooting guards. Midway through the third quarter, it looked like the Chicago Bulls would continue their somewhat mystifying mastery of the Toronto Raptors, a stretch of dominance that had seen Toronto go without a win over their Midwestern opponents since Dec. 31, 2013.

Brook Lopez’s winning shot pushed the Pistons out of the East’s playoff spots. The NBA-worst Brooklyn Nets took on that role Tuesday against the Detroit Pistons, who entered the night as the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Robin Lopez, Serge Ibaka suspended one game each for throwing punches in Bulls-Raptors tilt (Ball Don’t Lie)
When the Chicago Bulls and Toronto Raptors next battle their respective opponents they will be without the services of two of their toughest, some might say “too-toughest,” big men. Robin Lopez and Serge Ibaka were “suspended without pay for one game for throwing punches at one another,” the NBA announced on Wednesday afternoon, knocking Lopez out of Chicago’s Wednesday night tilt with the Detroit Pistons, and Ibaka out for Thursday’s match in Miami.

One day after NBA Commissioner Adam Silver issued a memo to all 30 NBA teams calling the practice of resting star players for marquee games “an extremely significant issue for our league,” and one that will be punished with “significant penalties” in the future, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar and four-time NBA Most Valuable Player LeBron James took issue with the commissioner’s approach and claimed that the league has only begun considering rest days for stars a serious problem now that he’s the one doing the resting. Joe Vardon of cleveland.com was among a group of reporters who broached the topic with James on Tuesday in Los Angeles, where the Cavs remain after a Saturday-Sunday back-to-back against the Clippers and Lakers. James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love sat out the front end of that set, in a decision that drew the ire of the ABC/ESPN personalities broadcasting the game, mail delivery enthusiasts, fans in attendance at Staples Center disappointed that they’d shelled out for tickets to watch LeBron and Kyrie but instead got served heaping helpings of Channing Frye, Richard Jefferson, and Williamses Deron and Derrick — and, evidently, the league office, which called Cavaliers general manager David Griffin shortly after the team announced its decision to sit its top stars to express its displeasure, and which issued Silver’s statement in Monday’s memo.
