Brian Cook, Andre Miller suspended
NEW YORK -- The NBA has suspended Clippers forward Brian Cook for two games and Trail Blazers guard Andre Miller for one after a rough conclusion to Portland's 100-91 victory Sunday.
Cook was whistled for a flagrant foul and ejected after shoving Joel Przybilla in the chest as Przybilla went up for a layup at the end of the third quarter. Miller was suspended for "making excessive and unnecessary contact" with Blake Griffin of the Clippers with 7:06 left in the fourth.
The NBA announced the penalties on Monday.
Cook will begin serving his suspension when the Clippers host the Sacramento Kings on Monday night. Miller will sit out when the Blazers host the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.
