Roy Hibbert Gets Ejected as Pacers-Warriors Erupts in Brawl

Jesse DorseyFeatured ColumnistFebruary 26, 2013

En route to the Indiana Pacers' 108-97 win over the Golden State Warriors, a stands-spilling skirmish broke out between David Lee and Roy Hibbert.

Hibbert initiated it all, taking offense to a bump from Lee, so he gave him a big ol' shove. Lee came back with aggressive shoulder torpedoing and the rest was a bunch of shoving, shuffling and spilling a bit into the crowd.

Here's an extended look at what happened:

Technical fouls were handed out to Lee, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, David West and two to Hibbert.

Pacers-Warriors brawl not as bad as it looked at first. Too much density of players and lots of pushing around.

All the technical fouls offset. Not sure Lee didn't get tossed for shove on Hibbert that instigated it all.

David West came very close to throwing a punch ... he at the very least mushed Andris' Biedrins

Jarrett Jack is the only one on the Warriors that actually wanted to do something there.

In the end, it was a lot of nothing that got a little out of control, but it seems as if West and Jarrett Jack got off a bit light.

West was forcefully inserting himself into the middle of the scrum, while Jack was as mad as a rabid kitten out there. 

It was a slightly testy game throughout that went slightly overboard, but not much else.
