NBA Finals, Game 6: Mavericks, Heat Have Skirmish Resulting In Three Technical Fouls

As expected, there's a bit of drama in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. After Eddie House capped a 14-0 run by the Miami Heat, three technical fouls were handed out by the officials as the game went into a timeout. 

ABC had cut away from the coverage live as Dallas had called a time out, but after consulting the replay monitors, the referees gave technical fouls to Udonis Haslem and Mario Chalmers of the Heat as well as DeShawn Stevenson for the Mavericks.

Stevenson appeared to have shoved Haslem out of the way en route to his bench, which Haslem took exception to. Chalmers came flying in like a bat out of hell to exacerbate things before both benches were eventually cleared in the brouhaha. 

As with most sports "brawls", it was just a bunch of shoving and shouting.

Dirk Nowitzki went to the line to shoot one free throw, thanks to two of the technicals offsetting each other.

At the very least, the time it took to assign technical fouls helped cool Miami's momentum.
