Simmons NBA feud explodes in playoffs melee


//

The simmering feud between Ben Simmons and Jared Dudley has boiled over during game four of the Philadelphia 76ers' NBA play-off series with the Brooklyn Nets - won 112-108 by the Sixers.

Midway through the third quarter, 76ers' centre Joel Embiid fouled Nets big man Jarrett Allen and Dudley took exception.

Dudley confronted Embiid and 76ers' Simmons and Jimmy Butler also became involved.

There was a crush of players that went at veteran Dudley and they went into the first rows of the crowd. Simmons was pressed against Dudley as the melee collapsed into the seats.

Dudley started the controversy earlier this week when he said in an interview Simmons was "average" when restricted to playing in the half-court.

Dudley and Butler were ejected after the melee. The drama happened with the Nets up 67-61.

The 76ers lead the seven-game series 3-1, after Mike Scott hit a go-ahead three then Simmons made a steal in the final 20 seconds, taking the ball from Allen. Tobias Harris made two free throws to ice the result for Philly.
