The game between Rain or Shine and Kia turned ugly after Elasto Painters center Raymond Almazan and Picanto big man Eric Camson traded blows late in the second quarter.
Almazan and Camson got tangled near basket while fighting for positioning during a rebound play. Camson appeared to hit first with an elbow that triggered the scuffle.
Almazan retaliated, gracing Camson with an elbow to the face then punches were thrown before players Ronald Tubid, Don Trollano and the referees helped pacify the situation.
Both were ejected after getting slapped with a flagrant foul penalty 2.
The two met while being escorted by security on their way to their dugouts on opposite ends of the Cuneta Astrosome hallway and got into a heated verbal exchange.
Rain or Shine leads, 44-40, at the half as of posting.
