Roy Hibbert, David Lee suspended
Mike and Mike in the Morning
ESPN NBA analyst Tim Legler talks about whether anyone can beat the Heat in the playoffs, the incident between the Warriors and the Pacers, Andrew Bynum and more.
The NBA handed down the penalties Wednesday, one day after Hibbert and Lee exchanged shoves under the basket with 6:10 remaining in the fourth quarter, sparking a fight that included multiple members from each team.
Hibbert, who also shoved Curry twice and was ejected after the scuffle, stated that he spoke to league officials Wednesday morning to offer his account of the incident.
The 7-foot-2, 280-pound Hibbert told the Indianapolis Star that he regrets his role in the altercation, which carried into the seats behind the baseline at Indianapolis' Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
"My mom was a little upset," Hibbert told the Star. "She said I should have walked away. It's unfortunate it happened. I watched the video and I saw there was a little kid that ran up out of his seat when all that happened.
"I apologize to the fans that were sitting courtside. We're a team that loves the fans and we don't want to scare them away."
