The NBA was in full force yesterday for Christmas, and pretty much all the games were worth a watch. In addition to the joyfulness of the Holiday, there were also a few scraps. Tempers ran high in the Celtics vs. Nets game when Gerald Wallace decided to grab Kevin Garnett's shorts after an offensive rebound. The two were broken up quickly, but the play non the less was very awkward.
Russell Westbrook also got heated in the OKC Thunder match up with the Miami Heat. A rematch of last years NBA Finals. You know both teams have mutual respect, but they both want the title again this year. Westbrook got fouled hard by Dwyane Wade and Shane Battier when he went up for a fast break layup. He went flying into the bottom of the rim then hopped up with his fists clinched like he wanted to knock out Battier. Serge Ibaka then got in the mix with Wade and they shoved each other for a few more seconds. In the end Christmas was saved and no punches were thrown. Check out the two fights in the videos below.
