It’ll cost both players.
Detroit Pistons forward Marcus Morris has been fined $15,000 for shoving Indiana Pacers forward Paul George, and George has been fined $10,000 for contributing to the altercation, it was announced today by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.
The incident occurred at the conclusion of the Pacers’94-82 win over the Pistons on Jan. 2 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
Morris’ fine, I understand. But what did George do? Take a step toward Morris after getting shoved (and incidentally, toward the Pacers’ locker room)? Anything else?
Sometimes, the NBA fines players when someone else tries to fight them. George probably has to just pay this fine and keep it moving.
