(USA Today) -- Things got contentious during one sequence in the fourth quarter of the Miami Heat’s Friday night game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Here’s how things unfolded:

First, LeBron James was called for an offensive foul for pushing off on Brooklyn’s Andrei Kirilenko.

As the drive continued, Nets forward Mirza Teletovic wrapped his arm around James’ neck in retaliation.

LeBron was unhappy, and started to react to Teletovic before being held back by, of all people, Michael Beasley. 

After video review, officials made a strange series of calls: an offensive foul on James and a flagrant foul on Teletovic. James was given two free throws and the ball.
