Three Fined in Bucks/Lakers Altercation


The NBA fined two Los Angeles Lakers players and one from the Milwaukee Bucks for an on-court scuffle that broke out during the Bucks’ 107-103 win Friday night at the Staples Center.

Bucks center Greg Monroe has been fined $35,000 for shoving Lakers guard Nick Young above the shoulders, the league announced Sunday. Young was fined $25,000 for initiating the altercation by shoving guard Malcolm Brogdon. And Lakers guard D’Angelo Russell was fined $15,000 for entering the altercation and pushing Monroe. The scuffle erupted in the third quarter when Young was fouled hard by Brogdon on a drive to the rim. Several other players joined in the scrum, which had to be broken up by the officials.
