Miami’s Udonis Haslem, Dexter Pittman Suspended By NBA

Michael Garcia - May 24, 2012

David Stern and his squad of enforcers laid the hammer down on the Miami Heat. Seldom used Dexter Pittman has been suspended for three games for throwing a forearm shiver into Lance Stephenson's throat, and Udonis Haslem got one game for bashing Tyler Hansbrough.

Neither of these suspensions were totally unexpected, but I thought Haslem might skate by. Guess not. It still remains to be seen if Danny Granger can go for Indiana tomorrow night, so it might even out anyway. Haslem has been somewhat important for the Heat, and nobody had ever really heard of Pittman until he hit Stephenson.

Here's Pittman's cheap shot on Stephenson.
