It's safe to say that things got a little heated on Monday night between the Brooklyn Nets and Houston Rockets.

Dwight Howard and Kevin Garnett got into it during the first quarter. After some initial pushing, Garnett then threw the ball at Howard, then headbutted him, sparking a fight between the two teams.

After the dust settled, KG was ejected, while Howard stayed in the game, according to Rod Boone from Newsday.

On Tuesday, the NBA ruled on this little fracas:

After review, officials determined KG has been ejected. Dwight stays in game.

Nets forward Kevin Garnet suspended one game & Rockets center Dwight Howard fined $15K for their altercation in last night’s game.

Garnett is known for his antics, but this might have gone a bit too far.
