Warriors’ Andrew Bogut, Blazers Mo Williams suspended for altercation, others fined

Nov 25, 2013, 3:18 PM EDT

It was an odd “fight” (all NBA fights have to have that word in parenthesis as a “West Side Story” dance fight generally is more intimidating). Andrew Bogot and Joel Freeland got tangled up under the basket, then in his effort to get away Bogut throws a forearm at Freeland’s head. Mo Williams jumped in to go at Bogut and defend his guy, and then it’s on.

Tuesday the League came down on the incident:

Bogut and Williams have each been suspended one game without pay (Williams will sit out Monday night vs. New York, Bogut is out Tuesday vs. New Orleans. In addition LaMarcus Aldridge has been fined $45,000, Portland’s Wesley Matthews and Golden State’s Draymond Green have been fined $20,000 each for “escalating the incident.”

In the game Matthews, Williams and Green were ejected, while Freeland, Bogut and Aldridge got technicals.

    Proof that the refs for that game are absolutely horrible. All that time they spent reviewing things, and they let Bogut walk away. But that’s OK, if he hadn’t been such a cheapshot artist we might not have won the game.

    Bogut with the cheap shot? Get your eyes checked loser, Bogut tried to shove him away because he wouldn’t let go after the play and accidentally elbowed him. Take off your biased homervision.

    Accidentally elbowed him? Hahaha, seriously that was as deliberate as could be. He backed down like a wussy when Aldridge came in. It’s not like it’s all Freelands fault he got tangled up. He just sort of took the high road after the elbow.

    Tough not to chuckle as a Bucks fan watching this. Woulda thought punches would get thrown any time Stotts, Mo & Bogut around each other? (Everyone)
