Marcus Morris, Paul George scuffle at the end of Pistons-Pacers

A shove and everyone comes running.

With the game already over and the Pistons waving the white flag, for some reason Paul George decided to try to swipe a final pass to Marcus Morris. Morris and George had been battling all game with George (finally) getting the best of Morris and the Pistons in the fourth quarter, putting up 21 of his 32 in the final frame on 7-for-7 shooting.

Going for the meaningless loose ball, Morris put a little bit of a gratuitous elbow into George and George took exception. After the final buzzer, George got up into Morris' face and started breathing that hot fire, so Morris pushed him away. This caused everyone to come running in to break it up and then you start to see other players start to express their own beef. Hold me back! Hold me back!

Luckily it didn't escalate into something more like we have seen in the past between these two teams, both Pistons losses. I'd rather not talk about it.

Now your thoughts.
