Los Angeles Lakers forward Markieff Morris was fined $35,000 by the NBA on Tuesday for his "on-court altercation" with Houston Rockets center DeMarcus Cousins following Morris' flagrant 1 foul on Jae'Sean Tate during Sunday's game.
Cousins was fined $10,000 for the testy exchange with Morris.
Markieff Morris and DeMarcus Cousins were called for double
technical fouls late in the first quarter of Sunday's game in
Houston. Following a hard foul on Rockets Jae'Sean Tate from
Markieff Morris, Cousins was given a technical for shoving Morris
to the floor and Morris then escalated the situation by chasing
after Cousins and shoving him, resulting in Morris getting ejected.
The two teams square off again tonight in Houston.
