James Harden of the Houston Rockets and Evan Turner of the Indiana Pacers have both received technical fouls after a scuffle in the third quarter. Turner was fouled by Chandler Parsons after he stole the ball from Patrick Beverley on Friday night. Turner pushed Harden with one hand at the end of the play. Harden immediately got in his face, so close it appeared they might be touching, and the pair exchanged words. They were quickly pulled apart while players from both teams yelled at each other.

So, Beverley was jawing with the Heat's players pretty much every second he was on the court, which was exactly 1,972 seconds. At one point, it appeared like Heat coach Erik Spoelstra subbed Cole out of the game so Cole wouldn't completely lose his mind and do something stupid. Cole might be the most level-headed player in the NBA, by the way. After the halftime buzzer, Udonis Haslem walked over to Beverley for a brief conversation. I asked Haslem about that conversation... "I was just giving him a hard time," Haslem said. "It was nothing serious. I just told him to stop talking crap and looking over at our bench. I know Pat. I think he the spent the summer with us. He's a hard-nosed kid, a real competitor, and I respect the road that he took and the success that he had, but he was just doing a lot of yapping and I told him to stop looking at our bench and talking crap.

"It wasn't nothing personal. I got a lot of love for Pat Beverley, but he was just looking over at our bench and talking and he's always got something to say. We're cool off the court, but in between the lines, I don't like it. "You play against a team that you worked out for, or you felt like you should have been there, or they made a mistake by letting you go, you try to prove something. And I guess he came out tonight with a chip on his shoulder." Miami Herald

When Rockets starting point guard Pat Beverley broke his hand in Detroit versus the Pistons on December 21, the initial word was surgery was needed and he’d miss four-to-six weeks of action. Surgery was successful and it’s approaching the fourth full week since the injury occurred. So naturally Beverley is saying he expects to be back very soon. “I went to the doctor (on Monday) and he said I’ll be back very soon,” Beverley told SportsTalk 790 on Tuesday, during his weekly radio appearance. “I’m playing before the 22nd, so that’s good news. I’m pretty excited about that.” CSN Houston

Chandler Parsons was asked if the players had been told who the starters would be and he sounded almost surprised that McHale had not shared that with the media. "I don’t know why it’s a big surprise," Parsons said. “It’s the same as how the preseason ended.” That means Patrick Beverley will not only make his first opening night roster, he'll be making his first opening night start. “I haven’t had the fortune to play in the NBA on opening night,” Beverley said. “It’s going to be my first. I’m definitely excited.” CSN Houston
