Tony Parker led the San Antonio Spurs to an impressive 120-111 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night, but most viewers' eyes were on the stands -- not the court.

TNT cameras captured a violent brawl between Spurs and Thunder fans during a break in play before the start of the fourth quarter, USA Today reported.

According to a fan who posted a video of the fight on YouTube,  the brawl began when an inebriated Oklahoma City fan waved a Kevin Durant jersey in the air. An equally inebriated Spurs fan snatched the jersey away and tossed it, the Thunder fan punched the Spurs fan and all hell broke loose.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich made headlines when he told his team to "get nasty" during Game 1 of the series, but it's unlikely he meant the fans too.
