Two Heat Players Suspended After Dust Up With Raptors

Things got super heated in the Toronto Raptors/Miami Heat matchup Saturday night, to the point where a scuffle broke out under the basket after the Heat's Caleb Martin charged at Raptors' rookie center Christian Koloko and knocked him into the stands. The NBA has now handed out its punishment, suspending Martin, and more. 

Martin was suspended for one game for “instigating an on-court altercation by taunting Christian Koloko and then tackling him into the spectator stands.” Martin's teammate, rookie Nikolo Jovic, was also suspended for a game automatically for leaving Miami's bench area to join the melee. 

Koloko was fined $15,000 for his role, which the NBA defined as “grabbing Martin during the altercation.” He basically just lay there under the scrum, mostly smiling.

It all went down during the 3rd quarter after the two fought for a rebound. 

The Raptors immediately went on a run after the incident, coming back from 24 points down to get within three points in the final minute, before losing 112-109.

The two teams won't have to wait long for a rematch, as Toronto is at Miami again for the second of the two-game set Monday night. Martin, however, won't be around as he serves his suspension.
