Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert was ejected for his role in a brawl with the Golden State Warriors during the fourth quarter of Tuesday night's game at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The fight started with Warriors forward David Lee pushing Hibbert underneath the Pacers basket. Hibbert pushed back and things got heated quickly. Warriors guard Stephen Curry tried to come in to help, but Hibbert tossed him like a rag doll twice. The pushing and shoving among the players spilled into the corner of the court, with a few players falling into the crowd. Pacers forward David West was particularly heated and ended up pushing a coach. Ironically, David Lee, who started everything, walked away and stayed out of the middle of it.
Fortunately no players were injured, and no major punches were thrown during the brawl. Hibbert was the only player ejected, while West, Curry and Warriors guard Klay Thompson received technical fouls.
In the end, the Pacers won where it counts, on the scoreboard, with a 108-97 victory.

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.
