Roy Hibbert was ejected last night after starting a fight during the Indiana Pacers game against the Golden State Warriors.
Hibbert was shoved by David Lee shortly after a whistle inside the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Hibbert didn’t appreciate the shove and pushed Lee back. Soon after that, both teams were pushing, fighting, and yelling among fans sitting courtside.
Yahoo reports that Hibbert was ejected from the game while several other players received technical fouls. After the game, Hibbert said that he expected to be suspended. Hibbert said:
“To tell you the truth, I’m probably sure I’ll probably have to sit out the next game. But, you know, it is what it is. This team’s very capable. We have each other’s back. And we’re going to get prepared for the Clippers. So I’ll find out in the morning.
The NBA hasn’t announced any suspension yet.
If Hibbert is suspended it will most likely be for throwing guard Stephen Curry to the ground. Curry tried to step in to stop the fight between the two big men and ended up getting tossed to the floor.
“Seriously, I didn’t feel [Curry]… It’s between David Lee and [Curry] just wanted to get involved. You know, I’m the type of person — I don’t want to start anything with someone that’s smaller than me. If I have somebody my size, you know, we’ll talk it out like men. I don’t take pride in tossing a little guy to the side.”
Here’s the video of the incident. Do you think Roy Hibbert should be suspended?
