NBA: Golden State Warriors at Miami Heat Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA has announced that Golden State Warriors center Zaza Pachulia was fined $15,000 for striking Miami Heat forward Luke Babbitt in the face.

The minor skirmish, which resulted in a technical foul for Babbitt and a flagrant foul called on Pachulia, occurred with 6:51 remaining of the fourth quarter in the Heat’s eventual 105-102 victory over the Warriors.

Babbitt was not accessed any further penalty by the NBA.

Do you think Pachulia got off easy or was this the appropriate punishment? Should he have been ejected during the game? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
