VIDEO: Kevin Garnett head-butts Dwight Howard, gets ejected


iKevin Garnett and Dwight Howard got into an altercation during Monday night’s game.

During the 1st quarter of the Brooklyn Nets’ home game against the Houston Rockets on Monday night, Nets big man Kevin Garnett got into a squabble with Rockets center Dwight Howard that resulted in Garnett being ejected from the contest. Both men were assessed a technical foul, but Garnett was tossed for throwing the ball at Howard and then head-butting him. Howard responded with a slap, but the refs refrained from hitting him with an additional technical foul because his flail was open-fisted. Take a look at the tussle below:

Howard has been picked on often this season, being called “soft” by Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant and a “p****” by Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant. Add Garnett to the list of players that have exchanged pleasantries with Houston’s big man.
