The incident occurred with 0:01 remaining in the third quarter of the Cavaliers' 126-101 victory over the Raptors.

Ibaka's suspension was based on his instigation of the physical altercation, throwing a punch at Chriss, and his prior history of fighting during NBA games. Chriss's suspension was based on throwing a punch at Ibaka.

Chriss will serve his suspension tonight when the Cavaliers visit the Philadelphia 76ers at Wells Fargo Center, while Ibaka will begin serving his suspension on Thursday when the Raptors host the Los Angeles Lakers.
