Watch David West shove Kyrie Irving as things get physical in Game 5

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

As the Warriors began to pull away in the second quarter of Game 5 against the Cavaliers, Kyrie Irving reached in and tied up David West. West didn't appreciate the aggressiveness, so he immediately shoved Irving, receiving a technical foul for his actions. Tristan Thompson and J.R. Smith soon joined the fray and received technical fouls of their own, and it required several people to separate the players involved.

Golden State overcame early foul trouble to enter halftime with a 71-60 lead, so Cleveland will need to show plenty more fight if it hopes to claw its way back into this one.
