Metta World Peace, Russell Westbrook Get Into Scuffle During Game 3 of Lakers-Thunder Playoff Series (Video)

Metta World Peace is at it again.

The Lakers forward got into a brief scuffle with another Thunder player during Friday night's Game 3, though this incident wasn't quite as brutal as the elbow he delivered to James Harden a few weeks ago.

World Peace and Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook both chased after a loose ball during the second quarter of Friday's game. The two then got tangled up, at which point tempers began to flare. Pushing and shoving ensued while the two sides exchanged some heated comments.

The officials had to restrain both World Peace and Westbrook, but they did a good job of ensuring things didn't get out of hand.

However, don't be surprised if World Peace — not exactly the model citizen — finds himself in the midst of another dust-up at a later date. When it comes to his antics, you've just got to expect the unexpected.
