Miami Heat point guard Goran Dragic and Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson were ejected following a heated confrontation during the third quarter of Friday night's game at Staples Center. 

The incident started when Dragic went to set a screen on Clarkson at the free-throw line, at which point Clarkson shoved the Heat floor general. Play continued after the initial contact, but the two proceeded to clash below the basket before Clarkson appeared to catch Dragic with a forearm above the neck.
