Washington Wizards players were unhappy with the latest fan incident that occurred Monday night at the Capital One Arena during their Game 4 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.

The fan got onto the court in the third quarter. The man was tackled and restrained by security as 76ers center Dwight Howard looked on. The fan was escorted out and the team said it would pursue charges.

Wizards forward Rui Hachimura was unsure what the fan was trying to do this time.

“I think they’re just excited to come back. But they’ve got to be more respectful of us as players. They think they can do whatever they want,” he said.

The Wizards stayed alive in the series with a 122-114 win.
