Minnesota Timberwolves’ Patrick Beverley and Milwaukee Bucks’ George Hill received their punishment with regards to their roles in an on-court altercation of their teammates last week.
The NBA announced on Tuesday that Beverley is given a $20,000 fine, while Hill is set to pay for $15,000. Following the entangle between Taurean Prince and Serge Ibaka in a fight for a possession after a free throw attempt, Beverley went against the veteran big man and shoved him from behind to start the escalation. Hill responded with a shove of his own against the fellow point guard.
Upon their reckless actions, both Hill and Beverley were ejected with technical calls from the officials. On the other hand, Prince and Ibaka were assessed and still managed to finish the game.
T-Wolves went on to win the game, 138-110, as Karl Anthony-Towns led the feisty pack with 25 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists.
