Asi Taulava will serve his suspension the game against Barangay Ginebra San Miguel.
The breakdown of the P32,500 fine = P2,500 for a technical foul for second motion + P20,000 for a flagrant foul penalty 2 + P10,000 for “joining the fracas instead of pacifying the protagonists.”
Asi Taulava apologized for this incident in his Twitter account:
