The fine was coming, it was obvious from the moment the shoving started. The only question was, for how much?
The answer: $15,000.
Both Milwaukee’s Marvin Williams and Orlando’s James Ennis were fined that much for “their roles in an on-court altercation,” the league announced Sunday. That altercation led to both players being ejected after a second-quarter scuffle following a battle for rebound positioning.
The two had gotten physical under the basket trying to get positioning, with Ennis pushing off Williams then bumping into him. That was followed by each man shoving the other, the referees blowing the whistle to stop play, and Bucks assistant Darvin Ham trying to break it up.
It was a double-technical with both players ejected for the incident.
Game 4 between these two teams is Monday. The Bucks lead the series 2-1.
