Portland Trail Blazers center Chris Kaman got a little heated on Wednesday night as he shoved Chris Paul to the ground to set off a mini brawl with the Los Angeles Clippers.

With the third quarter winding down, Kaman pulled down an offensive rebound only to see Paul steal it from him and keep the ball inbounds.
Kaman clearly wasn’t impressed and in frustration he shoved CP3 out of bounds which eventually earned him a flagrant one foul and will likely see him hit with a fine or possibly a suspension by the NBA.
That in turn set off a chain of events elsewhere on the court as Glen Davis started to rush towards Kaman only for LaMarcus Aldridge to prevent him from reaching him.
However, the Clippers star clearly lost his balance and as Aldridge pushed him away he fell to the floor. No call was given by the officials on this one and that was the right decision as ‘Big Baby’ went down under his own fall.
Nevertheless, the Clippers will be delighted to have turned it around in the fourth quarter with Paul finishing the game with 41 points as they continue to push to secure home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
Kaman will have learned the hard way that he needs to maintain his discipline for the good of the team…
