Issues escalated shortly in Utah Thursday.
Marquese Chriss did not like a no-name on a play the place he felt he had been taken out by Ricky Rubio; Jared Dudley did not like what the Jazz guard did so he fouled him exhausting, after which Chriss got here again and shoved the Spaniard to the bottom simply for good measure.

All of this took about 30 seconds to transpire, however the two gamers misplaced cash even quicker than that Saturday because the NBA fined Dudley and Chriss closely.
“Phoenix Suns forwards Marquese Chriss and Jared Dudley have each been fined for their roles in an on-courtroom incident with 6:fifty five remaining in the third quarter of the Utah Jazz’s 116-88 win over the Suns,” the league introduced in a press launch.
“Dudley, who was ejected for committing a Flagrant 2 towards Jazz guard Ricky Rubio, has been fined $25,000 for initiating an altercation,” the discharge continued. “Chriss, who was assessed a technical foul and in addition ejected, has been fined $25,000 for escalating the altercation by shoving Rubio.”
Rubio was not fined for the incident.
