Dwight Howard is certainly making a lot of news since his transition from the NBA to his new overseas team.
A huge fight involving Dwight Howard’s Taiwanese basketball team, the Taoyuan Leopards, recently broke out and things got really bad that led to the ejection of 12 players.
According to Keoni Everington of the Taiwan News, Taoyuan Leopards guard Chen Hsiao-jung elbowed TaiwanBeer HeroBears guard Chiang Yu-an in the face. Those two would throw punches that would spark a major brawl that involved players and coaches from both teams.
The report says Howard played the role of peacemaker when he involved himself but was still ejected. He finished with 28 points, 14 rebounds, and seven assists in his team’s 120-108 victory.
As you can tell by the video, an assistant coach could be seen throwing punches as refs moved in to separate everyone.
Howard signed with the Leopards in November. Through nine games, he’s averaging 24.4 points, 14.1 rebounds, and 6.2 assists.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
