During a very close game in the Chinese Basketball Association, former NBA players Stephon Marbury and Jimmer Fredette got into a scuffle. Although no punches were thrown during the altercation, Fredette and Marbury had to be separated by players and referees. He was the CBA International MVP last season. Fredette, 28, was the No. 10 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. The former BYU star has averaged 50.3 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in his last three games. He spent his first few seasons on the Minnesota Timberwolves, where he was supposed to be the Robin to Kevin Garnett's Batman. While they were never teammates, they both played for the New York Knicks at one point.

In the end, Fredette got the best of Marbury, dust-up aside, outscoring his elder 54-4 while adding 13 rebounds and 10 assists in a 123-119 overtime victory.
