Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder and Houston Rockets forward PJ Tucker have been ejected from Game 5 of their first-round series matchup.

Halfway into the third quarter, Schroder was caught red-handed as he hit Tucker in the groin. The latter was setting a pick for James Harden, who was being chased by the Thunder guard.

The Rockets’ burly enforcer wasn’t having any of it, proceeding to headbutt Schroder as he plead his case to the official.

Dennis Schroder was assessed with a flagrant 2 as he and PJ Tucker were sent to their respective locker rooms immediately.

Both players were having solid games prior to the ejection. Tucker had five points, six rebounds, and two steals, while Schroder was responsible for the Thunder’s second-quarter boom, scoring 18 of his 19 points in the period.
