Dwight Howard and Marc Gasol got into a mammoth-size pushing match Friday night during the Rockets-Grizzlies game in Houston.
The incident began when Gasol drew a double team from Howard and Rockets guard Patrick Beverley in the first quarter. The Spaniard apparently didn't like that much as he passed the ball and then sent Beverley to the floor.

That is such a shocking development, next thing you will tell me is that Jerry Jones isn’t the head coach of the Cowboys and James Harden only dates doctors.
On @NBCSportsRadio, Stan Van Gundy says he didn't advise Dwight Howard to go to Houston, but did tell him it was a good decision.
