Garnett suspended for Game 2

The NBA has suspended Kevin Garnett [1] for Game 2 of the Celtics [2] playoff series with Miami Tuesday night at TD Garden.

Garnett was involved in an altercation with Miami’s Quentin Richardson [3] near the Heat bench with 40 seconds remaining in Game 1 when he threw an elbow at Richardson’s jaw. Garnett received two technical fouls and was ejected. Richardson was also fined $25,000 by the league.

After the game, Richardson sounded off on Garnett and Paul Pierce [4], saying, “I don’t like them and they know it.” Richardson and Pierce have a history of bad blood.

On Sunday, Garnett called Richardson’s comments, “classless,” and said he had no regrets [5] for how he handled the incident.
