Not much of a brawl, more like hand bags at 10 paces.

Curry was dumb, but not suspension worthy.

And I don't think Curry actually pushed anyone anywhere. If anything, Linebacker in a point guards body Jarret Jack is the second shooter. Although, he likely only got involved to protect Curry.

I disagree on Curry.  Firstly he grabbed Hibbert from behind, which helped escalate.  You can grab your own teammates, not opponents.  Secondly, after he got swatted away, he charged back into the fracas pushing.  Just because he's too small to do anything to Hibbert doesnt mean that the intent wasn't there.  He was not playing peacemaker.

I think Curry should get a suspension.  He basically tried to tackle Hibbert twice after the point when it was about to slow down.  Luckily Hibbert realizing what a shrimp he was fending off is what kept it from getting ugly.

I think they will be. Hibbert/West and Lee/Curry are likely to each get a game. (Maybe more I haven't studied the video super close)

As the Warrior's play tonight, those guys might need to get two games.  Jarrett Jack will probably get the most, as he escalated the situation, and has the added benefit of not being a star.

A brawl?  ::)

All the fuss on the internet was about that? Seriously, everything about the NBA nowadays it's such a big deal and blown out of proportion...either a bump on a ref...a push on this or that guy...give me a break.

Predictions:  Curry will probably get suspended 2 games - his actions were pretty close to Rondo's against the Nets.

Hibbert will get 1 or 2 depending on how harshly they look on him throwing Curry down. 

Lee will probably get 1 but could get out with a fine. 

Several other guys (Jack, Stephenson, Thompson, maybe West) will be fined.

That's lame if they suspend Curry and Lee. I'm going to the game Friday.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Pacers center Roy Hibbert and Warriors forward David Lee have each been suspended a game without pay for starting an altercation during their game that drifted into the stands.

Three other players were fined for the incident in the fourth quarter of Indiana's 108-97 home win Tuesday. Hibbert was ejected after the skirmish, which began when he and Lee exchanged shoves under the basket after a missed shot.
The NBA said Wednesday that the Warriors' Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson and the Pacers' Lance Stephenson were fined $35,000 each for escalating the fight.
Lee will miss Golden State's game Wednesday night in New York against his old team, the Knicks. Hibbert will sit out Thursday at home against the Clippers.

Still playing against us, but not the Knicks. NOT FAIR.

Wow, no suspension for Curry - seems like little man bias right there.  Hard to imagine a bigger player charging in repeatedly like that wouldn't get a suspension.
