Video: Rafer Alston Slaps Eddie House

Eddie House gave the Magic all sorts of fits in Game 2, including Rafer “Skip to my lou” Alston, who slapped House in the back of the head after the prolific three-point shooter nailed another shot. House turned around and a staredown ensued before referees separated the two.

Eddie described the incident after the game better than anyone else.

“All I did was hit a shot, turn the other way and I got hit upside the head,” House said. “I guess he was tired of getting hit upside the head.”
