It’s not super uncommon to see NBA players get very heated with each other on the court, but in this day and age, it is pretty rare for those confrontations to end in the fisticuffs basketball fans were routinely treated to a few decades ago.

Nowadays, most altercations follow the same formula: a couple of guys act Big Mad and do a bunch of posturing while waiting for someone to swoop in and give them an excuse to say “You’re lucky someone’s here to hold me back.”

That’s basically what unfolded when Kevin Durant and P.J. Tucker got into it during Thursday night’s Eastern Conference Semifinal game between the Nets and the Bucks.
