HOUSTON (AP) - James Harden of the Houston Rockets and Evan Turner of the Indiana Pacers have both received technical fouls after a scuffle in the third quarter.

Turner was fouled by Chandler Parsons after he stole the ball from Patrick Beverley on Friday night. Turner pushed Harden with one hand at the end of the play. Harden immediately got in his face, so close it appeared they might be touching, and the pair exchanged words. They were quickly pulled apart while players from both teams yelled at each other.

Houston led 73-50 at the time of the fracas. Harden scored 16 of his 28 points in the third quarter of Houston’s 112-86 victory.
