O'Neal departed after receiving two technical fouls in the third quarter Sunday. Dalembert received one technical and remained in the game.
Moments before the confrontation, Dalembert accidentally poked O'Neal in the eye under the basket. Following a timeout, the two were running upcourt when their arms tangled. A foul was called on another player, and O'Neal briefly grabbed Dalembert's face with one hand before being pulled away.
