NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA has fined Phoenix Suns forwards Marquese Chriss and Jared Dudley $25,000 apiece for their roles in an altercation during a game against the Utah Jazz.

The punishment handed down Saturday stem from the Suns' game Thursday night in Salt Lake City.

With Utah leading 69-50 in the third quarter, Jazz guard Ricky Rubio was headed full speed on a fast break when Dudley body-blocked him to the floor, starting a scrum in front of the Suns' bench. Dudley got a flagrant 2 foul and was ejected, along with Marquese Chriss for pushing Rubio back down after Dudley's shove.

Rubio was shoved to the floor twice in the game, which the Jazz won 116-88.
