Nikola Jović, a forward for the Heat, has also received a one-game suspension for leaving the bench to join the altercation.

The incident unfolded just over 11 minutes into the fourth quarter when a foul by Miami’s Kevin Love on Zion Williamson sparked a confrontation. Marshall and Butler engaged in a shoving match that escalated, requiring intervention from players and staff to restrain them.

A second skirmish erupted between Bryant and Alvarado at the scorer’s table shortly after the initial altercation, leading to ejections for Butler, Marshall, Bryant, and Alvarado. The two teams are set to face each other again on March 22 when the Pelicans visit Kaseya Center.
