by January 04, 2016

The NBA announced Monday that forwards Paul George and Marcus Morris have each been fined for their roles in a shoving match over the weekend.

Morris took exception to George’s meaningless steal at the end of a win, and the two had to be separated.

From the press release:

Detroit Pistons forward Marcus Morris has been fined $15,000 for shoving Indiana Pacers forward Paul George, and George has been fined $10,000 for contributing to the altercation, it was announced today by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.


The incident occurred at the conclusion of the Pacers’94-82 win over the Pistons on Jan. 2 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
