Tempers flared in the fourth quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers' 110-82 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday night.

The Lakers had a 90-73 lead when backup point guard Steve Blake drove to the basket and was pushed to the ground by Dallas' Jason Terry. Blake immediately went after Terry and a shoving match ensued.

The scuffle escalated when Los Angeles' Matt Barnes joined in and shoved Terry. Dallas center Brendan Haywood got involved as well just before the players were quickly separated.

But Barnes wouldn't stop charging after the Mavericks guard. Dallas assistant coach Terry Stotts tried to hold Barnes back by the Los Angeles bench, but the Lakers guard threw him to the ground.

Blake, Terry, Barnes and Haywood were all ejected.
