Pacers' Hibbert tossed after near-tussle with Warriors Lee

Roy Hibbert was ejected from the Indiana Pacers' 108-97 victory Tuesday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Indiana big man was slapped with a pair of technical fouls resulting in an automatic ejection in the fourth quarter that began when Hibbert was involved in a shoving match under the basket. Emotions simmered midway through the fourth quarter when Hibbert and Warriors' All-Star big man David Lee were entangled.

Warriors' guard Stephen Curry, who had a game-high 38 points, jumped into the mix but Hibbert threw him to the ground. Curry got right back up and went after Hibbert again, but the Pacers shoved him to the side again.

That caused all 10 players on the court to get into and coaches from both teams ran onto the court.

When things settled down, Hibbert was given two technical fouls, which means an automatic ejection. Pacers' top scorer David West was also given a technical. Curry, Lee and Klay Thompson all picked up technicals for the Warriors.

Hibbert went to the showers with 13 points, nine rebounds and five blocks in 28 minutes.
