Hibbert, Lee Suspended After Fight 2/28/13
NEW YORK - The Golden State Warriors were without forward David Lee against the Knicks Wednesday at Madison Square Garden.
Lee and Indiana center Roy Hibbert each received one-game suspensions from the NBA for starting an altercation that drifted into the stands Tuesday night. Hibbert was ejected after the skirmish, which began when he and Lee exchanged shoves under the basket after a missed shot. The NBA says that the Warriors' Stephen (STEH'-fihn) Curry and Klay Thompson and the Pacers' Lance Stephenson were fined $35,000 each for escalating the fight.
Hibbert will sit out the Pacers' game Thursday against the Clippers.
