BROOKYLN, New York- Monday night’s Houston Rockets game against the Brooklyn Nets was drama! No ifs, ands, or head butts about it!

Seems that Nets forward Kevin Garnett had a case of the “big-bad-bully” towards Dwight Howard. There was some pretty undeniable tension.

In the first half, Garnett not only throws the ball at Howard, he then proceeds to walk right up and head butt him!

That jerky moved got Garnett jerked right out of the game. Adding salt to the wounds, the NBA suspended Garnett for one game without pay.

As for Howard, he walked away with a sore head and $15,000 fine. But at least the headache may have been worth it since the Rockets beat the Nets.
