OKLAHOMA CITY - With 2:05 remaining in Wednesday night's game at Chesapeake Energy Arena, Memphis Grizzlies power forward Zach Randolph and Thunder center Kendrick Perkins were ejected after a verbal altercation while lining up across from each other at the free-throw lane.
After the two players were separated, Perkins ran off the court in front of the Thunder bench and into a hallway, where he had another altercation with Randolph outside the postgame interview room next to the Thunder locker room.
The players were separated by Oklahoma City police officers. People in the postgame interview area heard something being slammed against the door.
Security members huddled briefly thereafter to discuss the matter, but no action was taken against either player.
