Bucks’ Sanders suspended; Pacers’ West, Granger fined for “fight”

Apr 20, 2012, 6:12 PM EDT

It really wasn’t much of a fight. For a guy dancing around losing his cool it really ends up not taking much resistance to keep Milwaukee’s Larry Sanders away from Indiana’s David West. He doesn’t look like a guy who really wants a fight.

But it was enough of one to earn some actions from the league. Sanders was suspended two games without pay by the league for “initiating an altercation, failing to leave the court in a timely manner and actions following his ejection” the league announced Friday afternoon. Sanders will sit out Saturday when the Bucks play the Nets and Monday against the Raptors.

Both West and the Pacers Danny Granger got $25,000 fines from the league for escalating the incident.

    David West does a lot of boxing in his off time. You don’t want to mess with the dude….

    I’d like to know what the NBA punishment would be today for when McHale clotheslined Rambis in the 84 Finals. Ejections and 50k in fines for some finger pokes…

    Basketball fights are always lame. These guys run around acting tough, but look like chicks when they fight. I can’t remember seeing a “good” basketball fight.

    So West gets fined for nearly getting jabbed in the eye and Granger gets fined for blocking Sanders attempt to blind West, nice work NBA.

    I’m a huge bucks fan but Larry Sanders is 110% worthless. I wish West woulda knocked him out!

    Time for marginal players to make a name, and hopefully a contract…
