Jermaine O'Neal added 15 points and Al Harrington 13 but were involved in a scuffle with Denver's Juwan Howard with just under five minutes remaining. Howard was upset with Harrington and threw a punch, at which point O'Neal entered the fray and attempted to attack Howard. The players were separated and Howard and O'Neal were ejected.

Poor Howard, do you think it could have been frustration after the line he delivered tonight?

29 minutes, 1-10, 2pts, 2rbs, 2as, 1stl, 4to, 1blk and fouled out.

What is the deal with the Pacers. They are involved in more fights than anyone in the league.

Nuggets F Howard suspended two games for throwing punches
October 25, 2002

NEW YORK (Ticker) - Denver Nuggets forward Juwan Howard was suspended for the first two regular season games and fined $15,000 for throwing punches at Al Harrington and Jermaine O'Neal of the Indiana Pacers in a preseason game Wednesday.

The incident occurred with just under five minutes left in the fourth quarter. Howard threw a punch at Harrington when O'Neal intervened. O'Neal and Howard then began pushing and shoving before Howard started to throw punches.

Perhaps Howard was frustrated after missing 9-of-10 shots from the field and scoring just two points in Denver's 96-89 loss.

Denver acquired Howard last season before the trade deadline in the deal that sent Raef LaFrentz and Nick Van Exel to the Dallas Mavericks.
