Trevor Booker was ejected from Tuesday's preseason game after swinging at Roy Hibbert.

Hibbert approached Booker during a stop in play at the 7:14 mark of the third quarter, and the players got in each other's faces before Booker took an open-handed swing at Hibbert.

Hibbert was held back his teammates to avoid a further escalation.

"That's what normally happens, but I'm happy to have teammates that will have my back," Hibbert said.
