With 9:23 left in the 4th quarter, Steve Blake drove to the basket, and was shoved to the ground by Jason Terry.
Blake, immediately bounced up and got in Terry’s face. As officials were trying to separate the two, Matt Barnes rushed in and shoved Jason Terry. Barnes, was immediately ejected, and was pushed away by officials towards the Lakers bench.
While Barnes was walking towards the Lakers bench, Mavericks assistant coach, Terry Stotts, grabbed Barnes to act as a sort of a “peace maker”. Barnes, told him to get off him, he then attempted to unwrap Stott’s hands from his waist, and then finally shoved the coach to the ground.
Steve Blake, Matt Barnes, Jason Terry, and Brendan Haywood would all be ejected.
Shortly thereafter, a fan from the stands, ran down the stairs towards the Mavericks bench, and four red coats (security) had to stop him, and immediately ejected the fan from the stadium.
Finally, with 1:52 left in the game, Brian Cardinal fouled Pau Gasol, with a noticeable swat to the head. He then got tangled up with Shannon Brown, Brown then shoved Cardinal away from him, and Shannon was then ejected.
In total, seven ejections in this game, including all 3 of the “Killer Bees”. The Lakers are now 1.5 games up on the Mavs for the number two seed. Yet, suspensions are sure to come down from the league office. (Video of the first altercation after the jump)
