Dennis Schroder Fined $25,000 For Low Blow On P.J. Tucker, No Suspension

Dennis Schroder was fined $25,000 for his low blow on P.J. Tucker during Oklahoma City's game five loss to the Houston Rockets.


Both Schroder and Tucker were ejected from the game following the incident.


The Rockets reportedly wanted the league to investigate Schroder's actions, and were upset that no action was taken after Chris Paul's low blow on Ben McLemore earlier in the series.


The Rockets lead the series 3-2.

Chris Paul must have photos of Silver and a mistress or something, I just can't understand how this guy gets away with everything he does game after game and year after year. Meanwhile some other guy does one thing and it's a fine or suspension.

So the Rockets wanted to win G6 by having Schroder suspended. How embarrassing for the Rockets front office. If your front office doesn't have the confidence of a champion, neither will your basketball team. To be the best is to beat the best at their best.
