Kevin Garnett head-butts Dwight Howard, gets ejected (VIDEO)

Brooklyn Nets center Kevin Garnett isn’t one to walk away from a fight.

And in the first quarter of Monday night’s game against the Houston Rockets, he nearly started one during an altercation with Dwight Howard. The two had some words at the end of a play, and Howard slapped him in the chest.

Garnett responded by throwing the basketball at Howard, and then head-butting him. A skirmish then broke out.

Let’s watch it in slow motion.

Both players were hit with technical fouls after the altercation. Garnett was ejected, while Howard remained in the game.
