It was a basketball game ... until it was a boxing match.

Nemanja Bjelcia and Arron Afflalo got tangled up in the opening minutes of Tuesday’s game vs. the Magic in Orlando, resulting in a double technical.

That was just the opening act.

In the second quarter, Bjelica bumped into Afflalo on his way to contest for a rebound when Afflalo let loose with a right hook that could have taken down Mike Tyson.

Luckily, Bjelcia ducked under it like a champ and proceeded to get Afflalo into a headlock before teammates got between them to break it up.

Both players were ejected with their second technical.

Have a look for yourself:
