Mathews was fined $35,000 for initiating the altercation and taunting Monk. Houston forward Tari Eason was fined $30,000 for escalating the situation and making inadvertent contact with an official. Monk was fined $25,000 for continuing the altercation and taunting Mathews. All three players received technical fouls and were ejected.

Green and Tate will serve their suspensions during Sunday’s road game against the LA Clippers.

Houston has lost 14 of its past 15 games.
