Bucks’ O.J. Mayo ejected for punching Pelicans’ Greg Stiemsma (VIDEO)

Mar 7, 2014, 9:05 PM EDT

It’s been a frustrating season in Milwaukee, and it’s gotten to the point where the team’s players are taking out those emotions violently against their opponents.

Ersan Ilyasova received a suspension for the punch-shove combo he delivered to Reggie Evans, and we can expect the same punishment to be handed down to O.J. Mayo, who was ejected in the first quarter Friday night after throwing a punch to the neck of Greg Stiemsma.

In Mayo’s case, it’s clear he felt Stiemsma did him dirty by catching him in the face after the two got tangled up on a screen. But you can’t retaliate by immediately escalating things several levels like that.

The Bucks have three fewer wins than the Sixers do on the season. Let that sink in a moment, and you’ll begin to understand where all the frustration is coming from.

    Punching a guy like Stiemsma, I am a Bucks fan, but Mayo needsto be suspended for harming an endangered species.

    Lebron would still be flopping around like he got just got tazed, if someone came at him with one of those.

      Ppl bring up Lebron when it has nothing to do with him, then get angry when the headline involves him. You cant have your cake and eat it too.
