Late in Tuesday night's game in Atlanta, the New York Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis and the Hawks' Kent Bazemore got up close and personal.

With less than two minutes to go in the fourth quarter, Porzingis got tangled up with a group of Hawks players under the basket, and Atlanta's Kyle Korver picked up a personal foul. The action didn't stop after the whistle, however.

The 7-foot, 240-pound Porzingis and the 6'5", 201-pound Bazemore went face-to-face following the play. There was a little bit of bumping, but the players were separated before anything ugly happened. 

Porzingis and Bazemore were each assessed a technical foul for the altercation. New York held on for a 107-101 victory.
