In Game 3 of the Western Conference playoffs between the Houston Rockets and the Oklahoma City Thunder, an incident took place between Patrick Beverley and a person seating near the court.
Beverley was fined $25.000 for it by the NBA for what transpired with the Thunder fan who was revealed to be Stuart Scaramucci, son of minority Thunder owner Jay Scaramucci, NBA.com reports.
The whole thing began in the first half when Beverley fell at Scaramucci’s feet after a lay-up attempt. The latter said something to the Rockets player that began an exchange of words. After the end of the match, the Rockets guard approached Scaramucci once more and a rather… “warm” discussion started between them, until Sam Dekker managed to pull his teammate away.
