(INDIANAPOLIS) — A fight between multiple players broke out and spilled close to the seating area during Tuesday’s game between the Indiana Pacers and the Golden State Warriors at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
In the fourth quarter, Indiana’s Roy Hibbert was going up for a missed shot and was shoved by Golden State’s David Lee. They pushed each other before more players came in and directed the fight into the corner of the floor near fans.
“There were two or three guys coming after (Hibbert),” Pacers forward David West said. “We preach and talk about togetherness, so that’s part of what we’re going to do. We’re going to defend one another. They came after him too many times.”
Hibbert was ejected for his role in the incident while Lee, West, Curry and Klay Thompson received technical fouls. “Indiana’s a very physical team,” Lee said. “They’re one of the most physical teams, if not the most physical team in the East.”
As for the game, Indiana won 108-97.
