Jimmy Butler and Udonis Haslem were shouting at each other, fingers were pointed in various directions, some Miami players were trying to play peacemaker and Heat coach Erik Spoelstra slammed a clipboard to the floor in frustration.

And that wasn't the evening's low point for the Heat.

The Heat fell 118-104 to the short-handed Golden State Warriors, suffering their second straight loss and the fourth in their past seven games -- suddenly, Miami's grip on the top spot in the Eastern Conference is tenuous at best.

Tempers flared on the Miami bench in the second half, when Golden State started the third quarter on a 19-0 run. During a timeout amid that Warriors' flurry, Butler and Spoelstra had things to say to each other. Then Butler and Haslem exchanged words, both eventually needing to be held back by teammates.

After the game, it took Miami about 35 minutes to emerge from the locker room for postgame interviews, roughly three times as long as usual.
