New York, NY (Sports Network) - The NBA has suspended both Indiana Pacers
center Roy Hibbert and Golden State Warriors forward David Lee one game for
their role in an on-court altercation during Tuesday's game between the teams.
Hibbert and Lee got into a shoving match underneath the basket with 6:10
remaining in the Pacers' 108-97 victory at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. That led
to a brief melee involving several players that nearly spilled into the
stands, with Hibbert tossing Warriors guard Stephen Curry to the floor during
Curry and teammate Klay Thompson were each fined $35,000 by NBA executive vice
president Stu Jackson for escalating the brawl, as was Pacers guard Lance
Lee will sit out Wednesday's road matchup with the New York Knicks, with
Hibbert to miss Thursday's home outing against the Los Angeles Clippers.
