The Raptors' biggest lead was two points and they trailed by as many as 27 points on what can be described as a rough night. Toronto fell behind by 10 points and committed 11 turnovers leading to 13 points for the Cavaliers.
Ibaka and Chriss both went for the ball following a full-court pass as they tried to beat the buzzer to end the quarter. According to four Cavs sources and one with the Raptors - none of them named Chriss or Ibaka - Chriss said something very close to "quit that shit". Chriss appeared to say something as Ibaka got up. He jumped up and put his hands on Chriss' throat and blows were exchanged - though none connected. Both players were ejected shortly after the altercation.
The rhubarb only seemed to sharpen the Cavaliers' focus over the final quarter.
Ibaka joined Toronto in February 2017.
With that in mind, here are some takeaways from Monday night...
