09:07 PM ET 02.28 | In the semi-brawl that took place, the NBA came down hard with suspensions and fines to both teams. While Pacers guard Lance Stephenson didn't get suspended, he did however receive a fine of $35,000. The backup point guard for the Indiana Pacers, Stephenson has a salary of just $870,000. A fine like this would hurt his wallet greatly and result in 4 percent of his pre-tax savings. Roy Hibbert saw that his teammate had no reason to be in the fight at all but saw that Stephenson intentions resulted in being a good friend. Hibbert therefore wants to return the favor and has offered to pay for Stephenson's fine.
