Washington Wizards big man Nene was ejected from Game 3 on Friday night after head-butting Chicago Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler and grabbing the back of his neck. Butler was assessed a technical foul for his role in the fracas.

The NBA has reviewed whether anyone came off the bench to join the scuffle. 

Nene will be suspended for Game 4.

Here's a look at the action in slow motion:

Bulls locking horns, indeed.
