Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Heat and Pacers got physical during the second quarter, when Chris “Birdman” Andersen and Tyler Hansbrough began pushing and shoving behind the play.
Andersen initiated the contact when he knocked Hansbrough to the ground with his shoulder. The two then bumped chests, and Birdman proceeded to push Hansbrough into Roy Hibbert‘s waiting arms for good measure.
Both players were assessed technical fouls, and Birdman also received a flagrant-1 foul, which did not result in an ejection.
Andersen got the last laugh, though, when he made an impressive block on Hansbrough shortly thereafter.
