Kevin Garnett has always been a passionate guy, but this may be crossing the line.
The incident occurred at the Barclay Center with just a little under 10 minutes in the first quarter with Houston up 17-14. The two became intertwined when Howard was passed the ball and Garnett was charged with a defensive foul. Garnett and Howard got tangled and exchanged a few shoves to which Garnett then threw the ball at Howard.
The players confronted one another and it was at that time Garnett head-butted Houston. The two then went at it and Howard even slapped Garnett’s neck afterwards before the two teams pulled both players away.
