Late in the first quarter of the Cavaliers’ win over the Nuggets on Friday, Darrell Arthur shoved Dion Waiters as he elevated for a layup, and was ejected with 4.4 seconds remaining in the period for his actions.

A day later, the league handed down some additional discipline in the form of a one-game suspension.

The play was a dangerous one that was unnecessary, so it’s not surprising that Arthur received the added punishment.

Arthur will serve his suspension on Sunday when the Nuggets travel to Portland to play the Trail Blazers.
