TNT's Terrence Romeo and San Miguel Beer's Marcio Lassiter were ejected from their game after nearly coming to blows in the PBA Commissioner's Cup on Saturday.

The two first got into trouble when a driving Romeo drew a hard foul from Lassiter with 3:59 to go in the second quarter.

Romeo confronted Lassiter before other players stepped in to prevent a fight.

Both players were each assessed a technical for second motion.

In the ensuing play, Lassiter was called for another foul while defending Romeo.

The TNT guard responded by clapping wildly while apparently gloating at the San Miguel swingman.

This irked Lassiter and pushed Romeo away.

The incident led to their ejection from the game.

San Miguel was leading 48-37 when the run-in happened.
