Charlotte Bobcats coach Paul Silas shoved 6-foot-10 forward Tyrus Thomas after a postgame screaming match Sunday night, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Several players intervened immediately and separated the coach and player, and no punches were thrown, sources said.

Silas, 68, had been incensed with Thomas chatting with some Boston Celtics players on the court, and lashed out at him in the losing locker room afterward. Eventually, Thomas snapped back at Silas, and the coach warned him to say no more or risk a suspension.

Once Thomas stood up, Silas pushed him toward his locker stall, sources said.

Bobcats general manager Rod Higgins met with Silas and Thomas, and both have been fined, a source said.

"There was an incident," Higgins told Y! Sports. "We handled it internally and talked to both the player and the coach and moved on. End of story."

Thomas played 20 minutes Monday night in a loss to the New Orleans Hornets, the Bobcats' 17th straight.

Charlotte has spiraled to a 7-53 record, and the Boston loss had been especially embarrassing for Silas, who played for the Celtics during his career. The Celtics sat out Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, and still won easily.

“Silas hates losing to the Celtics, and Paul was even angrier that he thought [Thomas] was acting buddy-buddy with some of their guys,” one source said. “That’s what got it going. But Paul was yelling at him over his salary, over what they have left to pay him. But it started with him saying, hey, he could live with the losing, but you’re going to be buddy-buddy as they’re beating your *** too?”

Gotta fire Silas. Cannot have a coach initiate a physical altercation with a player, no matter how stupid Thomas is.

Yes he is. He gave Tyrus what he should have gotten months ago. He needs to grow up.

If they allowed tasering of NBA players, the product on the floor would be so much better.

In Roman times, the emperor would simply take their balls off to prove a point.

And if Silas was emperor, TT would be balls-less right not.

30 years ago Silas would have knocked that scrub on his Azz! Silas was a real player, not a scrub like this dude!

Tyrus is a goon and a waste of space. Go Gramps!

Silas has coached some awful teams but he is like 100 games under .500 for his coaching career. I don't know that he is a good coach
