New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The NBA suspended New York Knicks forward Quincy Acy one game without pay for committing a flagrant foul 2 which initiated an altercation with Washington Wizards guard John Wall.

Wall took exception to a hard foul from Acy, retaliating with a shove. The New York forward swung his right arm as if to throw a punch before holding up.
