Mike Brown Suspended For Outburst

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Los Angeles coach Mike Brown has been suspended one game without pay and fined $25,000 for making contact with a game official and failure to leave the court in a timely manner following his ejection in Saturday’s game.

The NBA announced the suspension Monday. Brown will miss Monday’s game in Philadelphia against the 76ers.

The incident occurred with 8:41 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Lakers’ 96-87 loss to the Utah Jazz.

Brown received two quick technicals for arguing Pau Gasol was fouled by Utah’s Earl Watson.

    Coach, please settle down! This town do not need another ‘gang banger’, you’re better than that – I’ve followed you for over a decade and i can not remember you losing it the way you have in a couple of games this season. I know you will lead this team to a title, settle down, you’re doing a great job, you’re a winner.
