Actual fights in the NBA — not posturing and pushing, but an actual trying to hurt someone fight — are rare. They’re not common in Europe either, but there was a serious bench-clearing one between Partizan and Real Madrid yesterday in a EuroLeague showdown.

One of the critical moments of that was former Celtic Guerschon Yabusele picking former Jazz player Dante Exum up and bodyslamming him to the ground.

Exum was injured during the fight with team doctors saying a tendon in his second toe was ruptured. He had to be helped off the court and later sent this message to Partizan fans.

For his part, Yabusele regretted his actions.
Partizan now leads the best-of-five series against Real Madrid 2-0.
