Thursday's showdown between the San Antonio Spurs and the Oklahoma City Thunder lived up to the hype, and it's easy to say that it was a playoff atmosphere.

Thunder center Kendrick Perkins and Spurs forward Tim Duncan got tangled during a tight game in the third quarter. Perkins gave Duncan a shove after the Spurs veteran worked his way out of the mess, which led to Duncan getting a chuckle.

Both players received technical fouls for their actions.

It was a rough stretch for Perkins. He drew two personal fouls and a technical foul in less than a minute.
