If you can read lips, you know the f-ennheimer’s were flying last night at the Timberwolves-Heat game.

In a wild fourth quarter, Minnesota's J.J. Barea was ejected for shoving Miami's Ray Allen in retaliation for a previous shove, and coach Rick Adelman got a technical for arguing the call, deemed a Flagrant Foul 2 penalty.

In the end, Miami won again, 97-81, for their 15th straight victory.

Adelman said the Barea-Allen exchange changed the game, as the Wolves were down by just six points at the time.

Here's the scrap in question:

After he left the floor, Barea told the Pioneer Press: "I've been playing in the NBA for seven years. I don't get up crying and want to fight. It's part of the game."

Before he left the floor, Barea was seen "verbally attacking" Allen, and he wasn't calling him a crybaby:
