Tempers Flare Between Blazers and Thunder, Scrum Ensues

Action on the court got rough in the third quarter of a crucial game in Oklahoma City.

With the Portland Trail Blazers and Oklahoma City Thunder only seperated by a single game in the Northwest Division, action on the court can get chippy in a hurry.

After Portland’s Ed Davis reached over the top of the Thunder’s Terrance Ferguson, Davis appeared to clear Ferguson from his path. Ferguson hit the floor, and Russell Westbrook shoved back, resulting in a brief scrum between the two squads.

Technical fouls were assessed to Davis, Evan Turner, Westbrook, and Ferguson. Davis was also called for a common over-the-back foul.

Portland led 73-70 at the time of incident.
