Video: Marc Gasol Gives Meyers Leonard a Little Pat on the Head

No love lost between the teams that met in the first round of the 2015 NBA Playoffs.

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

In what has become a good yet predictably chippy match up, Trail Blazers big Meyers Leonard and Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol get tangled up on the low block for some extra-curriculars after the whistle. In what Mike Barrett of Trail Blazers Broadcasting describes as a "hostile action," Gasol clenches his fist, cocks back, and..... then pats Leonard on the back of the head.

This looked to be the start of another good battle between Leonard and Gasol as they each went at each other on successive possessions afterwards. However, minutes later Gasol appeared to tweak his foot and has since left the game. He will not return.
