Kobe Bryant. Kevin Durant. Now, Kevin Garnett. The NBA regular season hasn't even hit the halfway point and Garnett has become the third player to get into it with Dwight Howard. Nearly midway through the first quarter of tonight's game between the Houston Rockets and Brooklyn Nets, KG and Howard got tangled up a little bit. It seemed like a harmless foul, but things escalated pretty quickly. 

A push by Garnett turned into a retaliation shot by Howard and then things got out of hand. KG sealed his fate for the rest of the night by throwing the ball at DH and delivering a headbutt right to the dome. 

KG was ejected from the game while Howard received a technical foul.
