Watch: Security guard makes hilarious save during Curry/Westbrook scuffle

Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

It wasn't much of a fight but by now you've probably seen the shoving incident from Monday's game between the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder.

Besides, it's not every day you get to see two of the most popular players in sports go toe to toe when you know there's bad blood in the air.

Even less expected is when Stephen Curry is involved, as the little guy doesn't seem like the fighting type.

Speaking of little guys not ready for a fight, have another look as the fracas and see if you notice something hilarious up in the stands.

Check out the young man in the orange shirt who gets clearly excited when Curry and Thunder point guard Semaj Christon start shoving as the teams prepared for a jump ball late in the first half.

As players like Russell Westbrook and Draymond Green jump into the action, it's obvious that the shoving could turn into a more dangerous situation, especially for fans close to the action.

The last thing the league wants is for a young kid to get trampled during a fight, or a repeat of the Malice at The Palace brawl between the Indiana Pacers and Detroit Pistons from 2004.

Instead, let's take this chance to congratulate the security guard in this case, who casually tossed the kid back toward his seat as he took his place in between the fans and the action.

You can see the kid was startled to be hit unexpectedly from behind. It was not much contact, and the guard didn't do anything wrong, but you could tell the kid wasn't quite ready for what was coming.

Kind of like his beloved Thunder, in a way.

Monday's game between the rivals was the fourth meeting since Golden State knocked OKC out of playoffs in an epic seven-game series in the Western Conference Finals.

Of course, the main storyline has been Kevin Durant playing against his old team, although Monday he didn't dress, as he's fighting a knee injury that has kept him out.

Those four games have resulted in blowout wins for Golden State with margins of 26, 21, 16 and 16 points. Those are not close.

Even more, there's an outside chance these teams could meet in the first round of the playoffs if the San Antonio Spurs catch the Warriors and push them to the second seed and the Thunder fall to seventh.

The kid with the courtside seats better be ready.
