Sacramento Kings’ Domantas Sabonis suspended one game for confronting, making contact with official on Monday night

The NBA suspended Sacramento Kings center Domantas Sabonis for one game without pay for “aggressively confronting and making contact with a game official,” the league announced Wednesday.

Sabanis was ejected in Monday night’s game against the New York Knicks with 4:35 remaining in the fourth quarter at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento. The NBA said that after Sabonis received a technical foul for his reaction to a foul call he “approached and bumped the official in a hostile manner,” resulting in a second technical foul and his ejection.

The suspension will cost Sabonis $127,586, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks.

Sabonis had 19 points and 13 rebounds for the Kings in the 131-115 loss.

He is averaging 17.4 points, 12.8 rebounds and 5.9 assists in 11 games for Sacramento since being acquired in a trade from the Indiana Pacers before the trade deadline.
