Indiana Pacers And Golden State Warriors Fight During Game [VIDEO]
The Indiana Pacers are one of the NBA’s most physical teams thanks, in large part, to big man Roy Hibbert. David Lee of the Golden State Warriors is one of the league’s most physical players and one of the league’s best rebounders. That amount of physicality on both sides resulted in an ugly scene in last night’s game between the two teams as a fight broke out, spilling into the crowd in the process.
As you can see, the fracas began when Lee and Hibbert exchanged shoves under the basket while originally jockeying for a position on a rebound. This led to other players getting involved, and the momentum of the players carrying into the stands, bringing back ugly memories of the brawl between the Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers in 2004 that saw players attacking fans and vice versa.
Hibbert was ejected from the game for retaliating against Lee’s initial push, while teammate David West received a technical foul. Lee and guards Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry received technical fouls for the Warriors. Suspensions and fines will surely follow after further review from the NBA league offices.
