PBA fines Christian Standhardinger, Calvin Abueva, Doug Kramer for Game 2 antics
MANILA, Philippines—The PBA on Tuesday handed out fines on three players following the rough and tumble Game 2 of the Philippine Cup semifinals between Phoenix and San Miguel Beer Monday night.
Beermen big man Christian Standhardinger was slapped with a P20,000 fine plus CSR duties.
Standhardinger was ejected in the second quarter of Game 2 after being called for a flagrant foul penalty 2 when his foot hit the face of Fuel Masters forward Calvin Abueva as they were tangled up on the floor.
Abueva was also fined P15,000 for flashing the dirty finger thrice while his teammate Doug Kramer was fined P5,000 for his flagrant foul 1 on San Miguel center June Mar Fajardo.
The Beermen came back to win Game 2, 92-82, to lead the best-of-seven series, 2-0.
Game 3, which promises to be an even more physical affair, is on Sunday at Araneta Coliseum after the Holy Week break.
