Harrington, Lynch, Magliore ejected from Hornets-Pacers game

January 3, 2004

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A shoving match between Indiana's Al Harrington and New Orleans' George Lynch escalated into a fight Saturday night, leading to the ejections of Harrington, Lynch and New Orleans center Jamaal Magloire.

The fight broke out with 9:15 to play in the fourth quarter when Harrington was called for a foul on Lynch near the Pacers' bench. After the foul, 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.

Artest breaking up the fight. Youd think he would have instigated it.

mean. He has improved his attitude 87% from last season and seems to be challenging that desire purely into winning.

Speaking of Artest, did anybody see him try and pull Paul Pierce's pants down during the Indiana-Boston game? Pierce pulled his pants back up, caught a pass at the perimeter, and drained a jumper right in Artest's face. It was great.

Did I miss a joke here? Where did you come up with the 13% that you subtracted? Also don't you mean channeling?i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
