The Indiana Pacers were humiliated by the Rockets on Friday night, and recent acquisition Evan Turner got into a brief shoving match with Houston star James Harden during Friday’s game in Houston.
It wasn’t a fight , but their was plenty of nose kisses followed by a push-off on the part of Turner. Perhaps Turner is trying to play enforcer in order to ingratiate himself with his new teammates.
Whatever the case maybe, the Pacers have lost three in row and are not looking like the team we all thought could challenge the Heat this year in the East

Milwaukee Bucks guard O.J. Mayo is likely going to be hearing from the NBA commissioner.
During Friday night’s Pelicans-Bucks game, Mayo was caught on a hard screen by Greg Stiemsma. Mayo was obviously upset about the screen, as he retaliated by punching/forearming Stiemsma in the throat.
Mayo was ejected for the punch, and should be expecting a call from the league office soon.
Dustin Byfuglien and the Winnipeg Jets lost to the Los Angeles Kings in Winnipeg on Thursday night. Despite missing out on any points in the standings, the Jets earned a moral victory when Byfuglien checked LA’s Jake Muzzin over the boards onto the Jets’ bench.
Usually this kind of hit only happens in NHL ’14, but to see one happen in a real game was awesome. Even if it happened to my teams player.
