Nearing the end of the Miami Heat-Boston Celtics game one affair, Boston Celtic Paul Pierce went down with an apparent knee injury during the final 40 seconds of the game.
When Pierce’s teammates decide to go check on him, Miami Heat guard Quentin Richardson comes into the picture and appears to say something in the direction of Pierce.
Pierce’s teammate Kevin Garnett takes exception to whatever Richardson said and elbows him in the face which starts a mini-brawl near the baseline. Garnett after the game said that Richardson was “talking nonsense” to Pierce and that he was giving common courtesy to an injured player. Garnett was eventually ejected from the game and could possibly face suspension for game two of the series.
The below video includes the fight in it’s entirety along with Garnett’s ejection.
UPDATE–Chicago Breaking Sports is reporting that Kevin Garnett will be suspended for game two of the Heat/Celtics series and the Heat’s Quentin Richardson will be fined 25K for his actions that led up to this fight.
