Tempers were flaring early in Game 2 between Oklahoma City and Dallas when Dirk Nowitzki and Kendrick Perkins had a couple shoves for each other in the first quarter.
The trouble started when Nowitzki was hit in the face by Serge Ibaka after taking a hit to face on a jump shot. Nowitzki had some words for Ibaka down the floor. After Kevin Durant made a bucket for Oklahoma City, Perkins bumped Nowitzki and the two shared a couple of shoves before the officials and players stepped in. The pair were issues double technicals.
