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.
