A shoving match spilled into NBA stands Tuesday night when the Golden State Warriors visited the Indiana Pacers at Banks Life Fieldhouse.
As they were battling for position down low, Golden State’s David Lee and Pacer center Roy Hibbert started to push each other half way through the fourth quarter with Indiana up 95-85.
Indiana center Roy Hibbert (middle) was ejected in the fourth quarter during the Pacers 108-97 victory Tuesday night.
From there teammates got involved, with 6-foot-3 Warriors guard Stephen Curry thrown to the ground twice by 7-foot Hibbert.
Eventually referees and coaches separated the pileup on the baseline. Based off the video below, no punches were thrown.
Hibbert received two technical fouls and was thrown out of the game, while Lee, Curry, and second year guard Klay Thompson each were charged with a technical but played on.
In Hibbert’s absence, the Pacers maintained their lead and went on to win 108-97.
One of the most infamous fights in NBA history also involved Indiana, when then-Pacer Ron Artest rushed into the stands in Detroit and attacked a fan. It was later dubbed the Malic at the Palace.
As of now, no suspensions have been levied by the league office.
