NEW YORK (AFP) – Portland Trail Blazers centre Meyers Leonard and Philadelphia 76ers centre Daniel Orton were both suspended for one game by the NBA for a scuffle during a game on Saturday, Dec 14, 2013.
The altercation occurred during the fourth quarter of the Trail Blazers’ 139-105 victory, when Leonard slammed Orton to the court as they jockeyed for position.
Orton retaliated with an elbow to Leonard’s mouth.
Leonard served his penalty on Sunday, sitting out Portland’s 111-109 overtime win at Detroit.
