New York: New York Knicks forward Quincy Acy was suspended for one game Friday after a foul that sparked an altercation with Washington`s John Wall in a Thursday loss.
Acy was whistled for a flagrant foul and ejected for his role in the incident, which took place with 5:31 remaining in the fourth quarter of Washington`s 102-91 victory over the Knicks at New York`s Madison Square Garden.
Wall was fined $15,000 (12,320 euros) for pushing Acy and escalating the incident after being fouled. Teammates had to keep the rivals apart after the incident.
Acy will miss the Knicks` game Saturday at Sacramento as a rersult of the suspension.
At 20-8, the Wizards rank third in the Eastern Conference and only one game behind Atlanta in the Southeast division.
The Knicks, 5-26 after their sixth loss in a row, own the second-worst record in the NBA, with only cellar-dwelling Philadelphia, 4-23, below them.
