Report: Bucks’ Larry Sanders Suspended Two Games For Fight With Pacers

NBA

NBA discipline czar has handed down a handful of penalties for the scuffle that ensued last night between the Milwaukee Bucks and Indiana Pacers — Bucks forward Larry Sanders has been suspended two games, while the Pacers’ Danny Granger and David West have been fined, according to Inside Hoops.

A conflict broke out between Sanders and the Pacers with 3:29 left in the game and Indiana leading 107-94; a heated Sanders had to be restrained multiple times from several Pacers. He was ejected and failed to leave the court in a timely manner. He will be suspended two games without pay — tomorrow against the New Jersey Nets and Monday against the Toronto Raptors.

Granger and West have each been fined $25,000 for instigating and adding to the escalation of the incident.

The Pacers ultimately finished off a win over the Bucks, 118-109.
