Dallas Mavericks shooting guard Vince Carter called Dwight Howard of the Houston Rockets "the biggest crybaby I know" during a timeout in Wednesday night's game.

According to ESPN Dallas, the two had a heated exchange during a tiebreak in the second quarter. 

Howard was busy confronting an official when Carter felt compelled to interrupt the one-sided conversation to give his view on the matter at hand.

The players, who spent the best part of two seasons as team mates at Orlando Magic, eventually got on with the game.

The Mavericks came good with a 123-120 win with Monta Ellis finishing with a season high 37 points and two key assists. Dirk Nowitzki starred in the fourth quarter with 14 of his 35 points.

But the victory wasn't enough for Carter, who felt compelled to expand on his in-game comments about Howard once the tie had ended.

"All the time," Carter said to reporters when asked about Howard's complaining.

"He always talks about how I'm a crybaby. I was like, 'Yo, you're the biggest crybaby I know.' And then later, he's like, 'Yo, why'd you say that to me?' But I know Dwight. It's all good, but he is (a crybaby).

"I mean, he takes a lot of punishment, but I'm like, 'Yo, c'mon Dwight, c'mon. You elbowed, you're sitting in the paint the entire time. What are you whining about?' He told me to stop crying. I was like, 'What? Are you serious?'"
