During the end of the first half between the Atlanta Hawks and Indiana Pacers on Thursday night, Pacers guard George Hill and Hawks forward Mike Scott got into a little scuffle that included some hands to the face and possibly some eye-poking.
It wasn’t a huge fight by any means, but it could play a significant role in who is available for Game 7 this weekend.
Here is a video of the little scuffle:
Both players were handed a technical foul for the mix up.
However, the biggest question for the NBA will be what to do with Paul George, who was not involved in the fight but did take a step off of the bench and onto the court. According to the NBA rules, George should be suspended, but we will have to wait and see what the league decides and whether or not George will be available for Game 7.
