It has been a little while since we have seen a good old fashioned NBA brawl, but that changed on Tuesday night. The Indiana Pacers and Golden State Warriors got into a bit of a tiff that is certainly going to result in some suspensions.
Roy Hibbert was booted from the game, but he was the only one who was at the time. That certainly will make his stuff look worse. I am no expert on stuff like this, but a three game suspension or so might be coming his way. It seemed like he kept trying to escalate things and he was treating poor Stephen Curry like a rag doll–not a very good look for a league that is always trying to make sure its image is fine.
By my look, it seemed like David West and Jarrett Jack were also two guys that could have been tossed, but I have no issue with those two staying in the game. It was certainly not up to the level of what Hibbert was doing. There will be some people that say suspensions should not happen, but the league is going to try to stamp this out. A couple guys are going to end up missing games. That is a fact.
The NBA will do their best to keep stuff like this from happening again. The fight got close to the stands, which is a definite no-no in the league. Expect the punishments to come out soon.
