Big man Nick Collison and point guard Austin Rivers were ejected for fighting during Monday night's game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and New Orleans Pelicans.

The Pelicans broadcast picked up the start of the fracas—Collison bumping Rivers as the two ran up the court, per The Oklahoman's Anthony Slater:

Collison and the Thunder will be playing in the postseason, so he has to be smarter when playing against guys like Rivers, who have already been eliminated from playoff contention and have nothing to lose.
