NEW YORK, March 3 (UPI) -- The NBA suspended San Antonio forward Robert Horry for two games without pay Friday for his actions during the Spurs' 98-89 win over Dallas on Thursday.
Horry got into a fight with the Mavericks' Jerry Stackhouse late in the fourth quarter. When they were separated, Horry put his hands on referee Dick Bavetta while pleading his case.
Both players were assessed a personal and technical foul. Stackhouse has been fined $30,000 for publicly criticizing officials, and his foul was upgraded to a Flagrant Foul Penalty One.
"It's tough to come on the road in this environment and have to play against the refs, too," Stackhouse told the Dallas Morning News. "(Expletive) Dick Bavetta. I'm tired of his (expletive). It's like the game is about him. He just needs to call the game and call the fouls. It's like he didn't because we were up and he wanted to see them (the Spurs) come back."
