Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
After getting ejected from a game and threatening to fight each other away from the court a season ago, it looks as though Ben Simmons and Kyle Lowry have renewed their rivalry in the post-season.
Early in the second quarter of Thursday’s Game 3, Lowry appeared to box out Simmons under the basket and in the process sent him to the ground. Presumably, in thinking Lowry made excessive contact, Simmons retaliated by elbowing the Toronto Raptors’ starting point guard in the groin area. No foul was called on the play.
