Things got physical during the Mavs-Thunder game Wednesday night in Oklahoma City after Russell Westbrook got tangled up with J.J. Barea while going for a rebound midway through the second quarter. A requisite shoving match ensued, which ultimately led to Charlie Villanueva being ejected from the game for grabbing Westbrook by the throat.
The officials levied a double-technical against both Barea and Westbrook, and Westbrook would later earn another technical and also get ejected.
