Boylen appeared to take issue with an offensive foul Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell committed, and tempers flared when Doc Rivers spoke up to defend his player.
These coaches are known to be fiery competitors, but both teams suffered the consequences for it this time around.
Los Angeles led Chicago 91-76 at the time of the confrontation. It holds the final playoff slot in the Western Conference standings.
Meanwhile, the Bulls are far from the postseason race and sit at 13th in the East.
The Clippers won Friday’s game 128-121.
