It’s a given that when you put two perennial playoff contenders on the same floor against one another, at some point, the tempers are going to get the best of the competitors, and it didn’t take long for that to happen tonight between the Golden State Warriors and Indiana Pacers as Jordan Crawford and Lance Stephenson had some–well, words.

Just a few minutes into the second quarter, play was stopped as Stephenson and Crawford were apparently having some words with one another that may have escalated into something potentially larger, had they not been separated.

Something tells me that this might not be the last emotional outburst we see this evening between members of these two squads.
