SALT LAKE CITY – The NBA announced a slew of fines one day after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert and Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner got into a minor fight Thursday.

The scuffle occurred late in the fourth quarter of the Jazz 111-100 loss to Indiana, their first at Vivint Arena this season.

In addition to Gobert and Turner who were both ejected, Jazz guards Donovan Mitchell and Joe Ingles were also thrown out of the game with 4:01 left in the final quarter.

On Friday, the league announced suspensions for those involved.

Gobert was fined $35,000 for his role in starting the scuffle with Turner.

Mitchell received a $20,000 fine for his role in the brawl, including escalating the situation.

Likewise, Ingles was fined $30,000 by the NBA for his role in the fight including making contact with official Ed Maloy.

Meanwhile, Turner received an $25,000 fine for initiating the fight with Gobert after the Jazz center pulled him to the ground.

The shoving match occurred during the third game of a three-game Jazz homestand. The team will retake the floor Saturday afternoon against the Miami Heat.

The Jazz have lost three of their last four games after falling to the Pacers on Thursday. The team lost back-to-back games to the Heat and the Orlando Magic last weekend before snapping the mini losing streak against the Atlanta Hawks to open the homestand on Tuesday.

The team will have two days off after facing the Heat before hosting the Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors to complete the extended homestay.
