Alston, Fisher Suspended
NBA discipline dean Stu Jackson announced this evening that Orlando Magic point guard Rafer Alston and Los Angeles Lakers point guard Derek Fisher were both suspended one game for separate incidents on Wednesday night.
Alston slapped Boston's Eddie House in the back of the head with with 48.6 seconds remaining in the third period of the Magic's 112-94 loss to the Celtics in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinal at TD Banknorth Garden. Fisher got suspended for plowing through Houston's Luis Scola and contacting his shoulder and head with 13.2 seconds remaining in the third period of the Lakers' 111-98 win in Game 2 of their Western Conference semifinal at Staples Center.
Kobe Bryant did not get suspended but was assessed a flagrant foul penalty one for elbowing Ron Artest in the chest in the fourth quarter of that game.
Both Alston and Fisher will serve their suspensions on Friday.
