NBA Suspends mayo for punching Pelican's Stiemsma in throat

NEW YORK (AP) - Milwaukee Bucks guard O.J. Mayo has been suspended one game for punching New Orleans Pelicans center Greg Stiemsma in the throat.

The incident occurred with 1:52 remaining in the first quarter of Milwaukee's 112-104 loss to the Pelicans on Friday. Mayo got tied up with Stiemsma as he tried to get around a screen set by the big man.

Mayo was assessed a flagrant four 2 and ejected. He will serve the suspension Saturday night when the Bucks host the Washington Wizards.
