The Bulls’ Mike Dunleavy avoided a suspension for the shot to the neck he gave to Milwaukee’s Michael Carter-Williams early in Game 6, but Giannis Antetokounmpo wasn’t as fortunate.

Giannis tackled Dunleavy in retaliation, and was immediately ejected for his actions. He’s also been suspended one game, the league announced on Saturday via official release.

Since the Bucks are out of the playoffs, Antetokounmpo will be suspended for the first game of the 2015-16 NBA regular season for which he is eligible and physically able to play.

Dunleavy, meanwhile, gets away with more than one hit to Carter-Williams, and sees the first one upgraded to a Flagrant Foul 1, which comes with it no further disciplinary action.
