No suspensions, according to the NBA. Pacers and Hawks will be full-go for tomorrow’s Game 7.

After a few Pacers — Paul George, most notably — stepped on the court during a confrontation between Mike Scott and George Hill in the second half of Game 6, there was much speculation that George could be suspended.
He will not be, according to Scott Agness of Pacers.com.
Paul George will play.
As will Rasual Butler (the other guy on the court), Mike Scott (whose actions during the fight the NBA reviewed), and everyone else regularly scheduled to appear.
Which Pacers fans are hoping doesn’t include Roy Hibbert, naturally.
Ultimately, the difference between this and some past instances is quite obvious. Tim Donahue breaks it down in this video.
On Twitter. Bill Benner of Pacers Sports & Entertainment had the best reaction.
Glad we stayed in immediate vicinity of common sense.
