Marcus Smart fined $25,000, J. R. Smith $15,000 for Saturday's altercation

As expected, fines have been levied against Marcus Smart and J. R. Smith for their participation in Saturday's altercation.

Smith, as the instigator of the dust-up, received the lesser of the two penalties, while Smart , who definitely escalated the action, will have to pay the larger amount. The amazing part of this entire episode is that Smith did not get a dislocated shoulder after locking arms with Aron Baynes and being discarded by Aron in similar fashion to my intended analogy of the man chucking away an attacking, rabid fox. Action takes place at 0:50 of the video.
