CLEVELAND — Collin Sexton scored 28 points, Kevin Love had 16 points and 18 rebounds, and the Cleveland Cavaliers routed the Toronto Raptors 126-101 on Monday night.

Serge Ibaka of Toronto and Marquese Chriss of Cleveland were ejected for fighting late in the third quarter. Ibaka went to the floor after the two were competing for position under Cleveland’s basket as the Raptors attempted a full-court pass that sailed out of bounds.

Ibaka shoved Chriss from behind and grabbed near his neck before throwing a punch. Chriss responded with a punch before players from both teams separated the two. Ibaka immediately headed for the locker room and both players were kicked out after the officials conferred.

Ibaka hit the court hard in the second quarter after being fouled by Chriss after scoring on a rebound.
