Dallas Mavericks center Brendan Haywood, allegedly, is a very dirty player. Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy claims that Haywood punched Dwight Howard in the back during Friday night's Mavs-Magic game.

"It's really ridiculous, and I want to get it on film and send it in," Van Gundy said today, according to USA Today. "Haywood just punched him literally with a closed fist right in the back."

Howard missed today's practice, citing the back. He's expected to play tomorrow against the Denver Nuggets.
