The game-time altercation between the Houston Rockets and Sacramento Kings on Friday night resulted in two players being suspended and three others being fined by the NBA.
The altercation took place at around 11:09 minute left on the clock as Kings were en route to their 139-114, and started with Mathews fouling Monk in pursuit of a loose ball, before both were assessed technical fouls and ejected.
The two Rockets players- guard Jalen Green and forward Jae’sean Tate, have been slapped with one game suspension as they had left the bench area. The two will be unavailable this Sunday when Rockets visit the LA Clippers.
Meanwhile, Houston guard Garrison Mathews, forward Tari Eason and Kings guard Malik Monk are the three players who have been fined USD 35,000, 30,000 and 25,000 respectively.
