SALT LAKE CITY β€” There won't be any suspensions following Thursday night's altercation during the Indiana Pacers' victory over the Utah Jazz, the league announced Friday. A few pocket books, however, will be a little lighter.

The NBA fined Utah's Rudy Gobert, Joe Ingles and Donovan Mitchell for their part in the incident, as well as Indiana center Myles Turner.

Gobert was fined $35,000, Ingles $30,000, and Mitchell was fined $20,000 for their roles in the altercation; Turner was fined $25,000.

With about four minutes remaining in the game, Gobert pulled Turner down under the basket. That led to Turner throwing a shoulder into Gobert, who then turned and bear-hugged the Pacers big man while teammates and security ran over to intervene.

Gobert was penalized the heaviest due to pulling Turner down and initiating the on-court altercation, according to the league. Turner's fine came for escalating the situation with the shove.

During the altercation, Ingles ran in and pushed referee Ed Malloy, leading to his fine. The officials did determine that it was not an intentional act β€” a distinction that saved him from a suspension.

Mitchell was fined for escalating the situation by verbally taunting the Pacers.

The Jazz will play Miami at home on Saturday at 3 p.m.
