NEW YORK (Reuters) - Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett has been suspended for the second game of his team's first-round playoff series with the Miami Heat for his role in a heated confrontation between both sides, the NBA said on Sunday.
The exchange set off some minor pushing between the teams. Richardson was fined $25,000 for the incident.
The Celtics lead the best-of-seven series 1-0 after their 85-76 victory Saturday. Game Two is scheduled for Tuesday.
