Three players suspended and a fourth fined. This is the epilogue of the spectacular fight which punctuated the Orlando Magic match at the Minnesota Timberwolves (Magic victory 127-120) on Friday evening. Mo Bamba is the most severely sanctioned since he receives four suspension matches. The interior of the Magic pays the fact of having been on the bench (and not among the five on the ground) at the time of the incident which opposed him to Austin Rivers, but also his will to want to fight again afterwards the incident in the hallways of Target Center.
Rivers will miss three games. Like Bamba, he pays for his actions on the field but also for having added to social networks after the fact. The Magic Jalen Suggs, who had intervened by catching Rivers forcefully in the neck, will miss a game. Finally, Jaden McDaniels (Minnesota) will be fined $20,000 for his role in the ensuing melee and a push on Bamba.
