Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Garnett was ejected from a home game Monday night after he head-butted Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard during a scuffle.

The two men got into each other's faces after it appears the former Laker said something to Garnett while slapping him on the chest during a stoppage in play a little more than four minutes into the first quarter.

Garnett was given a double technical foul and ejected from the game.

Howard also got a double technical.

Commentators said a fine for Garnett was all but guaranteed.
