Beyond The Buzzer:
The NBA announced Wednesday that Golden State’s David Lee and Indiana’s Roy Hibbert have each been suspended one game without pay for instigating the fight that broke out between the Pacers and Warriors during Tuesday night’s game in Indiana.
Lee, averaging 19 points and 11.1 rebounds per game this season, will miss tonight’s game in New York. Hibbert, averaging 10 points and 8.1 rebounds per game this season, will sit out Thursday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers.
Warriors’ Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, and Pacers’ Lance Stephenson were all fined $35,000 for “escalating the altercation.”
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...
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.
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...
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.
The Indiana Pacers had their 5-game winning streak snapped against the LA Clippers with a 99-91 defeat at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
A lot of people will point to the fact that Roy Hibbert's suspension (for a pushing match with the Dubs' David Lee that spilled into the crowd) was the reason why the Pacers lost at home, where they are usually dominant, but the truth is,...
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...
