Paul George ejected for kicking ball into stands, hitting fan in face

Sunday November 6th, 2016

Pacers forward Paul George was ejected from Saturday’s 111–94 win over the Bulls after kicking the basketball into the stands and hitting a fan in the face with it.

George became upset during the third quarter, and appeared to aim his kick for the stanchion. Instead, he sent the flying right at someone’s face not too far away.

Kings bigman DeMarcus Cousins was fined $25,000 this week for entering the stands and throwing his mouthguard—though it didn’t hit anyone.
