Crawford hit Tim Duncan with two technical fouls just 1:16 apart late in the third quarter of San Antonio's 91-86 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday. The second came while Duncan was laughing on the bench and meant an automatic ejection, just the second of his nine-year career. During the altercation, Duncan claims Crawford challenged him to a fight while Crawford is claiming Duncan referred to him with an expletive.
Crawford's suspension will extend to the rest of the season and playoffs at a minimum.
