I don't know all the details, but I read why Yahoo Sports had to say about it and I found these images.. Someone that actually saw it, please inform us of what went down and give us any extra details.

Yahoo Sports The Pacers never trailed in a game filled with hard fouls, tough defense and a shoving match between Indiana's Al Harrington and New Orleans' George Lynch that escalated into a fight, leading to the ejections of Harrington, Lynch and New Orleans center Jamaal Magloire.

The fight broke out with 9:15 to play when Harrington fouled Lynch near the Pacers' bench. Lynch elbowed Harrington in the jaw and Harrington responded by first shoving Lynch, then tackling him into the Pacers' bench.

A melee ensued, with several Hornets and Pacers piling into the area.

As several players, including Indiana's Jermaine O'Neal and Ron Artest, tried to break up the fight, Magloire came from across the court and dived into the pile. O'Neal tried to restrain Magloire and pull him away, and Magloire responded by shoving O'Neal.

After an extended delay, the three ejections were announced and play resumed with Indiana leading 75-57.

George Lynch delibrately elbowed Harrington in the face when the play was dead, harrington charged him to the stands. Then O'Neal and Magloire started pushing eachother.

If George Lynch really started that, I'm glad Al Harrington beat him up.

Sounds good... I'll try and catch it on ESPNEWS.

Slava laughed at the suggestion his skills might be affected by the down time. "Are you kidding?" he said. "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."

AL Harrington has been for some on-the-court shoving matches...and he has a temper that can flare up easily...its ironic how he shares the same team with Ron Artest...

I remember last year he tried to punch the Kings' Gerald Wallace when Indiana was already blown out and the game was over. Young guys. Sigh.

But if George Lynch the vet really started it I don't know what to think..

I just watched it on ESPN and it looks like it WAS George Lynch who started it. Like Posto said, he threw an elbow to Harrington after the play and Harrington took him down into the stands.

I taped the replay on ESPN NEWS, does anyone want the video?

wow, look at what was said about it after the game...all I got to say is the next game is going to get ugly and fast

Sportsline: "They don't like us and we don't like them," Hornets guard Baron Davis said. "That's just how it's going to be."

Harrington said no punches were thrown, but it was clear that plenty of animosity will carry over to their next game -- Feb. 17 at Indianapolis.

When told of Davis' comment, Harrington said, "Well, we don't like them neither. The NBA better bring all their best officiating crews and plenty of security, because it's going to be a war the next time we see them."

Davis complained that the Pacers were delivering cheap shots all game.

"That's how it's going to be every time we play them," Davis said. "People are going to fall, get elbowed, get cheap-shotted. If that's how they're going to play, that's how it's going to be from here on out."

That's just fine with Harrington.

"It's on now," Harrington said. "Every time we play them, it's going to be a very good basketball game."

That's IT? I'd like to see the league at least be consistent with their punishments for fighting.

Yeah, that wasn't even an actual fight and they suspend him a game? That's dumb.
