Indiana coach Frank Vogel says he doesn’t expect any discipline from the NBA after a scuffle late in the first half that prompted Pacers star Paul George to step off the bench.

Atlanta’s Mike Scott and Indiana guard George Hill got into it under the basket after a missed shot in Game 6 Thursday night, shoving each other in front of the Pacers bench. Replays showed George and a teammate taking a step onto the court, though they were quickly pushed back by the assistant coaches.

No punched were thrown. Scott and Hill were each assessed a technical foul.

After Indiana’s 95-88 victory tied the series at three games apiece, Vogel said he’s ”not concerned about any suspensions until we hear something.” He added, ”I don’t imagine there would be.”
