Greg Monroe was so salty about falling down after getting blocked by Jonas Valanciunas, he seemed mad at his teammate, Khris Middleton, for committing a hard foul on Jonas before he could. After the foul, Monroe pushed Middleton out of his way so he could….touch Jonas’ breast? I know 2017 NBA fights don’t require punches or even five-finger slaps but this type of contact is just inappropriate.
The Lithuanian Lighting didn’t appreciate the feel, gave Monroe a shocked look, pushed him and then was hit with a punch — just kidding, he was hit with an undeserving tech by the ref. The tech on Monroe was warranted but I don’t see why Jonas deserved one. Oh well, the crowd loved it as Jonas walked to the bench, flexing with a 15-point lead.
When asked about Middleton and Monroe after the game, a confused bow-tie wearing Jonas said, “They were pushing each other, I don’t know.”
Jonas finished the game with 8 points and 7 boards in 21 minutes while Monroe had 11 points and just 2 boards(!) in 22 minutes of the 26-point loss for the Bucks.
