Though, the more interesting aspect of the NBA's decision is that it has removed Kirkland from officiating Association games for the next week.

Golden State Warriors guard Shaun Livingston has been suspended for his role in an "on-court" altercation in Sunday's win over the Miami Heat, according to the National Basketball Association. Kirkland will return to game action on December 11.

Livingston, upset for what he viewed as a no-call on a 13-foot jumper with midway through the second quarter of Sunday night's win over the Heat, stomped over to Kirkland on the baseline and, while unleashing a verbal tirade, brushed foreheads with him. Upon league office review, it was determined that Kirkland moved toward Livingston and shared responsibility for the contact that occurred.

Kirkland's ban will begin Monday and extend through Sunday.

Over the weekend, Golden State Warriors guard Shaun Livingston became enraged after he didn't get a foul on his contested shot, so he yelled at the referee and then they went forehead-to-forehead before Livingston was ultimately tossed from the game.

Hurricanes headed to Charlotte to play for ACC championship
Miami will be hampered offensively with season-ending injuries to wide receiver Ahmmon Richards and tight end Christopher Herndon. That group allowed just 214 yards and 10 first downs to help the Tigers win their third straight ACC title and fifth since 2009.


Livingston will serve his suspension on Monday when the Warriors face the Pelicans in New Orleans.

Livingston, 32, has played 22 games for the Warriors this season, averaging 4.7 points and two assists.

That is the case, but Kirkland isn't being absolved of fault in the incident by the league.

Any time a player makes contact with an official, an ejection and suspension are likely to be administered.
