VIDEO: Nick Young gets into scuffle with Drew Gooden, Jordan Hill grapples with Marcin Gortat and gets ejected


Last night, Nick Young and Jordan Hill played for the first time since February. Both players made their mark in their return, though.

Firstly, they did so in the basketball sense.

Young finished the game with 21 points in 29 minutes, while Hill registered 9 points, 14 rebounds and 4 blocks in 27 minutes of action. Both players came off the bench.

However, the biggest moment of the night for Young and Hill came when the pair got involved in an on-court altercation.

After putting up a shot in the lane, Drew Gooden locked up Young’s arm as he fell to the ground. Swaggy P took exception to this and went after Gooden. Marcin Gortat then headed toward the action, too.

Seeing this, Hill went charging over to Gortat and began to grapple with the Polish player.

Pau Gasol also did a good job of getting Young away from Gooden, while Jodie Meeks ran toward Swaggy P and Steve Nash – who also made his return last night – sprinted to the grappling Hill and Gortat.

This was appreciated by Young, who called out his teammates earlier in the season for not coming to his aid in Phoenix.

However, Hill was penalized for his involvement and was ejected from the game, as was Gooden, while Young just picked up one technical and was able to stay on the floor.
