In an absolutely bizarre happening, the NBA match between Detroit Pistons and Orlando Magic turned out to be brutal when Orlando's Moritz Wagner was briefly knocked out by a punch to the back of the head after starting a fight in the first half against the Pistons that led to three ejections on Wednesday. Moritz Wagner was flagged for a flagrant foul, while Detroit’s Killian Hayes and Hamadou Diallo were thrown out for their actions during the ensuing scuffle in front of the Pistons bench. Now, Detroit Pistons fight video has been breaking the internet and fans around the world are in shock with the fist fight which took inside the stadium.
With 34 seconds left in the first half, Wagner and Hayes chased an errant Magic pass into the backcourt. Wagner knew Orlando would be called for a backcourt violation as soon as he touched it, and as he slowed up to let it go out of bounds, Hayes tried to cut past him along the sideline. Wagner pushed Hayes into the Detroit bench which started a scuffle that involved every player on both teams.

As per US media reports, said Franz Wagner, Moritz’s younger brother said that his brother is fine adding, "I haven’t seen the video, but I know that’s the last thing he wanted to do." It is pertinent to mention here that in 2004, a fight between the Pistons and Indiana Pacers became forever known as “The Malice at the Palace” after fans became involved in the wild melee.
