NEW YORK (KRON) — Golden State Warriors guard Shaun Livingston has been suspended for his role in an “on-court” altercation in Sunday’s win over the Miami Heat, according to the NBA.
The NBA official, Courtney Kirkland, will also be suspended for one week without pay.
The altercation started when Livingston aggressively approached Kirkland as he protested a non-call in the Warriors’ 123-95 win over the Heat, NBA officials said. There was 6:24 left in the second quarter at the time.
During the incident, the NBA says Livingston and Kirkland bumped heads. Livingston was given a technical foul and ejected for making contact with the referee.
The NBA says Kirkland moved toward Livingston and “shared responsibility” for the contact.
Kirkland’s suspension will start tonight and end on Sunday.
Livingston will sit out Monday night’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans at the Smoothie King Center.
