Orlando guard Rafer Alston [1] has been suspended for Friday night’s game against the Celtics [2] for an open-hand slap to the head of Eddie House [3] following a House three-pointer late in the third quarter of Wednesday’s 112-94 Boston win in Game 2.

Alston said afterward that his slap was in retaliation for an elbow that House threw to his stomach after hitting the three-pointer. House was not suspended. Alston’s suspension was one of two handed out by the NBA on Thursday at Lakers guard Derek Fisher was suspended for Game 3 against the Rockets for his hit on Houston Luis Scola.
