Minnesota Timberwolves guard Patrick Beverley and Milwaukee Bucks guard George Hill are now both a little lighter in the wallet. On Tuesday, the NBA hit both players with fines for their involvement in an on-court altercation that took place during the game between the Wolves and Bucks on Saturday night at the Target Center in Minnesota. Beverley was fined $20,000 while Hill got fined $15,000. Beverley’s fine was likely larger due to the fact that he served as an instigator of sorts. 

The incident took place during the first quarter of the contest when Minnesota’s Taurean Prince and Milwaukee’s Serge Ibaka got tied up while vying for position at the foul line. While a referee was trying to separate the two players, Beverley came over and shoved Ibaka in the back, which led to Hill shoving Beverley in retaliation. The scuffle was quickly ended there by referees and the other players on the court. 

Prince and Ibaka were both hit with technical fouls for their role in the situation, while Beverley and Hill were both ejected. You can see the altercation below: 

With Beverley and Hill both sidelined for the majority of the contest, the Timberwolves went on to pull out an impressive 138-119 victory over the defending champion Bucks. Beverley returned to action for the Timberwolves for their game against the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night, while Hill will do the same during Milwaukee’s matchup with the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday night.
