LOS ANGELES: Golden State Warriors guard Shaun Livingston was suspended for one game, while NBA game official Courtney Kirkland will be benched for one week after their on-court bust-up, the league announced Monday.

Livingston and Kirkland clashed during a disputed non-call in the second quarter of the Warriors' blowout win over Miami on Sunday.

The duo bumped heads, leading to Livingston being handed a technical and tossed from the game.

However, an NBA review of the incident adjudged that Kirkland had made a movement towards Livingston and shared blamed for the incident, a statement said.

The suspension meant Livingston was forced to sit out the Warriors' game against the New Orleans Pelicans at Smoothie King Center.

Kirkland, meanwhile, will be removed from the NBA officiating rotation through Sunday. – AFP
