Birdman suspended

 

Miami Heat center Chris Andersen was suspended for today’s Eastern Conference Finals Game 6 (TNT, 5:30 p.m.) by the NBA for his altercation with Indiana Pacers’ Tyler Hansbrough during Thursday’s game. The league also upgraded Andersen’s foul to a Flagrant 2, which would have meant an automatic ejection had it been called at the time. Andersen knocked Hansbrough to the floor from behind with 9:02 left in the second quarter, then shoved him backward after Hansbrough got up. Andersen still wouldn’t back away when a referee stepped in.
