The NBA Playoffs are still going and things are heating up in a big way. That can escalate quickly and the situation can pop off when you least expect it.

During the third quarter of the Nets vs Bucks, P.J Tucker was shoved by a security guard during a little confrontation. Kevin Durant was fouled by Tucker and they got in each other’s faces for a bit before they were separated.

In the chaos, a security guard, who is Kevin Durant’s personal security hired at his request, shoved Tucker. This guard, 35-year-old Antjuan Lambert is now banned from all games from the remainder of the series between the Bucks and Nets.

Marc Stein reported that: “The NBA says that the Brooklyn Nets security official who made contact with the Bucks’ P.J. Tucker on Thursday night will not work any remaining games of this series in Milwaukee and will not be assigned to the court area in Brooklyn during this series.”

It seems this little situation was dealt with before things could get even more heated. The scene was already heavy with emotion already. Obviously, Kevin Durant’s security needed to take a little breather.

What’s your take on this situation? Should the NBA have used a harsher punishment? Sound off in the comments!!

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
