Evan Turner and James Harden got up close and personal with each other during Friday night’s Indiana Pacers-Houston Rockets game over a bit of nonsense. Things only calmed down after the referees separated the two. It also helped when David West stepped in to make everyone back down.
The incident occurred in the third quarter with Houston up 73-50 on Indiana. Turner got a steal and was quickly fouled, which prevented him from having an easy transition basket. Still, Turner continued to head toward the basket anyway for fun, but Harden got in his way to keep him from putting in a layup.
That led to Turner pushing Harden, Harden stepping to Turner, and the two going nose-to-nose with each other. Double-technicals were handed out for the incident.
You think they were just talking about setting up belated Valentine’s Day plans?
