MANILA, Philippines – Kelly Nabong was slapped a P30,000 fine by the PBA for his hard foul on Chris Newsome in the Governors’ Cup duel between San Miguel and Meralco on Sunday, October 27.
Nabong was assessed a flagrant foul penalty 1 for appearing to have undercut Newsome, who was driving hard to the basket after getting past Von Pessumal, with a shade under 8 minutes remaining.
An ejection followed for Nabong as he and Raymond Almazan figured in a word war, earning them both technical fouls.
Without Nabong, Meralco breezed through the 125-99 victory to hand San Miguel its third loss in the last 4 games.
PBA commissioner Willie Marcial warned that he will suspend Nabong should he repeat the same antics and will mete out a heftier fine. – Rappler.com
