Who said NBA preseason can't get physical? Thursday night saw a "Battle for Florida" as the Orlando Magic faced off against the Miami Heat. Earlier in the night, Magic guard Michael Carter-Williams and Heat rookie Tyler Herro got into a scrap, resulting in both receiving technical fouls. It didn't end there, as Carter-Williams grabbed onto the arm of Herro during the third quarter in front of officials. Both players were immediately ejected. After further review, however, it was determined that Herro did nothing wrong and Carter-Williams was only served the ejection.
It didn't take long for Herro to make an enemy in the league, though this may just be a last-ditch effort for MCW to remain relevant in the league, now playing for his sixth NBA team in as many seasons.
Don't tell NBA players that the preseason doesn't matter. The adrenaline and blood flows exactly the same through all players like it's the regular season or playoffs.
