George appears to step on to court from bench, Vogel not worried…
Atlanta Hawks’ Mike Scott and Indiana Pacers point guard George Hill got over-physical in the first half of their encounter on Thursday night, leading to a double technical.
While the duo engaged in a face-to-face confrontation, some eagled-eyed viewers noticed that Pacers star Paul George stepped on to the court during the scuffle, which could result in him facing punishment.
Essentially, there is a risk that George faces a suspension for Game 7 as players aren’t allowed to enter the court during such incidents, but given the fact that he merely takes one step forward and is immediately ushered back by the coaching staff, it doesn’t appear as though there is enough to hit him with a suspension.
Nevertheless, there are reports that the NBA are reviewing the situation and will take the necessary action if they believe that there is an infringement involving all players and not just George.
