Jarnell Stokes and Kalin Lucas were ejected from Tuesday's NBA D-League game between the Iowa Energy and the Rio Grande Valley Vipers after being involved in a fight during a timeout.

Fights occasionally happen during basketball games, but this might be the first of its kind. You see, Stokes and Lucas are teammates on the Energy, the D-League affiliate of the Memphis Grizzlies.

Although there's not a great video of the entire fight, it's clear that something happened during the timeout.

Lucas finished the game with 18 points, five assists and five rebounds, and Stokes exited the game with 16 points and eight rebounds. Iowa won 124-120.
