(New York) Trey Lyles of the Sacramento Kings was suspended one game without pay and Brook Lopez of the Milwaukee Bucks was fined $25,000 for their involvement in a late-game altercation Monday night, the NBA announced Wednesday.
The Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo was dribbling in the final minute of the Bucks’ 133-124 win over the Kings when he was fouled by Lyles, a Saskatoon-born Canadian.
He then pushed Antetokounmpo, and Lopez then confronted the Canadian.
Lyles punched and grabbed Lopez by the neck. Both players were ejected from the match.
Lyles will serve his suspension on Wednesday when the Kings visit the Chicago Bulls.
