Celtics, Hawks es­cape dis­ci­pline from Game 4

The Covington News - - Sports -

WALTHAM, Mass. — The Bos­ton Celtics and At­lanta Hawks es­caped dis­ci­pline for a Game 4 skir­mish in which Kevin Gar­nett pushed off a ref­eree while play­ers on both benches stepped onto the court.

NBA spokesman Tim Frank said Tues­day there would be no fines or sus­pen­sions. Four techni- cal fouls re­sulted in a game At­lanta won 97-92 to tie the best-of-seven se­ries at two games apiece.

The con­fronta­tion started when Kevin Gar­nett cleared out Zaza Pachu­lia with an el­bow, and the Hawks for­ward went fore­head-to­fore­head with the Celtics star. A ref­eree grabbed Gar­nett, but he, too, got a push as Gar­nett strug­gled to break free.
