Wizards forward Nene and Bulls guard Jimmy Butler went forehead-to-forehead during the fourth quarter of Game 4 on Friday.

The two butted heads after Nene shoved Butler in the face and then grabbed him around the neck with both hands before the two players could be separated.

Nene was assessed two technical fouls, leading to an automatic ejection. Butler received a technical foul for his role in the incident.

With the Wizards star sitting out the last 8:28 of the game, the Bulls rallied to a 100-97 victory to cut their first-round deficit to 2-1.
