Stephen Jackson suspended one game by league


This was expected — and it may happen again.

NBA Vice President Stu Jackson announced that the Charlotte Bobcats Stephen Jackson has been suspended one game for arguing with a referee during Saturday’s loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Jackson will sit out Wednesday’s Bobcat game against the Hornets. He previously this season was fined $50,000 by the league for verbal abuse of officials.

Just more than four minutes into Saturday’s game, Jackson drove the lane and thought he was fouled, but there was no call. He trailed behind the play moving back up court to argue with the official about the call and was given two technical and ejected. He earned this ejection, and now the suspension that comes with it.
