Two words Indiana Pacers fans do not want to see in the same sentence. Pacers and Brawl. But that’s what almost transpired outside of Club 23 in Orlando around 2:45 AM Thursday morning after the Pacers defeated the Magic to take a 2-1 series lead. According to TMZ, Pacers players, Danny Granger and Kyrylo Fesenko were involved in “a heated late night exchange” with a “pack of angry clubgoers.” Here’s a video of the altercation from TMZ: More from TMZ:
Sources at the scene tell us … the whole thing began when one of the clubgoers angrily accused Kyrylo of “bumping into him” … and then unleashed a flurry of verbal attacks at the NBA star. As Kyrylo tried to walk away from the situation … the mob grew in numbers and the taunts became louder. That’s when Kyrylo’s teammate Danny Granger charged towards the clubgoers … only to be restrained by some of his friends. Multiple bike cops peddled to the scene and diffused the situation … with Granger and Kyrylo calmly walking away without further incident. A rep for the Pacers tells TMZ … “Our players were provoked into a verbal confrontation and ended up walking away from the confrontation. To make something more out of this than what it was is ludicrous.”
The Pacers rep is right. They were provoked, and it’s not like the committed a crime or anything, but Pacers fans are going to be asking, “What are the doing at a club at 2:45AM?” Right or wrong, that’s the question that will be asked. It could’ve been worse Pacer fans. Ask yourself what Ron Artest, Stephen Jackson or Jamaal Tinsley would have done in that situation? Check us out on Facebook, Hair of the Dog Sports Blog.
