Tempers boiled over on the Los Angeles Lakers bench Friday night when star big men Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard got into a brief physical altercation during a timeout.

During the second quarter against the Phoenix Suns at Staples Center, Davis appeared to shout something at Howard as the teams walked off the floor. Howard did not acknowledge Davis and sat down as the Lakers began to huddle. Davis then approached Howard and stood over him exchanging words. When Howard stood up, Davis grabbed Howard by the arm and yelled again before teammates stepped in to separate the two.

The altercation came as the Suns outscored the Lakers 34-18 in the second quarter to take a 57-44 lead into halftime. After leading by three after the first, the Lakers shot 6-of-19 (31.6%) from the field in the second, while the Suns were 11-of-19 (57.9%) to build a double-digit lead.

Phoenix remained in control after the break and extended the lead to as many as 32 in the third quarter.
