What is it about the Pacers and melees? First there was the "Malice at the Palace" with the Pistons and now this.
During last night's Pacer-Warriors contest, things got heated between Roy Hibbert and David Lee in the fourth quarter. Off a missed shot, Hibbert shoved Lee who proceed to give Roy the shoulder-shove when all hell broke loose.
Stephen Curry came barreling in to get Hibbert away from his teammate, Hibbert proceeds to elbow Curry, and the melee ensues. Though you got to appreciate little Curry rushing in to help.
Though, Hibbert (who was ejected from the game) and Lee will see punishment from the league, David West has to be hit with something. He rolls into the scrum hitting Andres Beidrens, shoves a coach, and pretty much instigates some unnecessary roughness.
BEST OF MAXIM
Nearing the end of last night's Golden State/Indiana Pacers game looked more like a bar room brawl after Pacers center Roy Hibbert and Warriors forward David Lee got tangled up with each other.The incident occurred in the fourth quarter of play as Lee pushed Hibbert out of the way going for a rebound.Roy retaliated and thanks to that, the pushing fest turned a brawl between both...
Stephen Curry is a tough little guy. He got swatted to the court like a fly, got up, got popped in the head, and got up again. All this came a the hands of Roy Hibbert of the Indiana Pacers. Hibbert got into a shoving match with David Lee, but both teams quickly got involved. As you can see, Curry wanted a piece of the action, but Roy Hibbert wanted nothing to do with Curry...
Ah. Here we have a good ole shoving match between two up and coming NBA teams in the Indiana Pacers and the Golden State Warriors. Two teams who have title hopes with playoff realities. It started with David Lee's late push of Roy Hibbert who didn't like the contact and pushed right back resulting in David Lee giving Hibbert a shoulder push.
Then it got out of hand...
Roy Hibbert of the Indiana Pacers was ejected from the game against the Golden State Warriors after a fight broke out between the two teams.
David Lee and Roy Hibbert made like rams testing their maleness last night during the Pacers / Warriors 'brawl.' And then Steph Curry made like Jeff Van Gundy.
But at least no one got smacked...

The Golden State Warriors and Indiana Pacers got tangled up in a minor pillow fight Tuesday night, leading to an ejection and one-game suspension for instigator Roy Hibbert (co-instigator David Lee also received a one-game suspension). During the skirmish, tiny Steph Curry got tossed like a rag doll by Hibbert, who clocks in about a foot taller than the 6’2″ Curry.
Jerry Colangelo doesnt know who the coach will be and is still holding out hope it will be Mike Krzyzewski. But some of the players are coming together who could represent Team USA at the World Cup next year in Spain.Colangelo, chairman of USA Basketball, said Tuesday by phone that Golden State Warriors forward David Lee, a former University of Florida star, approached him at All...
A return to Madison Square Garden seemed to spark the New York Knicks.
Based on their recent performances against the Golden State Warriors, they might need more than just home-court advantage to avoid a return to their losing ways.
The Knicks look to close out an up-and-down month by getting a rare win over a Warriors team that will be without David Lee on Wednesday night.
The Indiana Pacers just failed to run their winning streak to a season-best six games. The same thing happened the last time they faced the Toronto Raptors.
Indiana, though, has a chance to extend a different streak Friday night when it goes for its fourth consecutive road win over the Raptors.
Going for its first 6-0 run since a seven-game surge last April 9-19, Indiana (36-22...
