The title pretty much says it all, but check out the video. The two teams get into an epic brawl, to the point that nearly both entire teams are ejected. After the ejections are all handed out, the teams are forced to finish the game short-handed, in what essentially became a 3-on-3 playground matchup.

This is definitely something the NBA should look into. When there are less guys on the ice in hockey, it frees up more space and makes things more exciting, in my opinion. The same could happen for basketball, and it would probably deter the players from getting in these huge fights. Well, it's a thought.

Here's a video that includes more footage of the post-fight aftermath, before they started playing again:

Best part of the long video is that the guy who essentially starts everything by slamming a dude in the face, somehow doesn't get ejected.

In Russia, everything is backward.
