The Oklahoma City Thunder are hosting the Golden State Warriors as of this writing but emotions are already running high.

With 5.3 seconds remaining before halftime, a scuffle broke out between Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry and Oklahoma City Thunder’s Semaj Christon. Check out the video below.

Both were trying to get good position on the jump ball, slight nudges that went out of hand. Draymond Green and Russell Westbrook would soon join the fray as players from both sides pulled them away.

All four players were given technical fouls. When play resumed, Curry ended with the final say when he drilled a three-pointer as the buzzer sounded. That shot allowed the Warriors to take a commanding 59-39 lead at the half.
