                 === Bogut, Mo Williams suspended for fight ===
 
 New  York,  NY (SportsNetwork.com)  - The NBA  suspended Golden State Warriors
 center Andrew Bogut and Portland Trail Blazers guard Mo Williams one game each
 after  the two  players  fought during  a  game between  the  teams this  past
 Saturday.
 
 Additionally, Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge was fined $45,000 by the
 league  for his  role in the incident,  which occurred in the third quarter of
 Portland's  113-101  win at  Oracle Arena. Portland  guard Wesley Matthews and
 Warriors  forward Draymond Green both received fines of $20,000 for escalating
 the scuffle.
 
 With  3:42  remaining in the  third quarter,  Bogut became entangled with Joel
 Freeland under the basket and elbowed the Blazers center in the jaw, prompting
 Williams,  Matthews  and Aldridge  to  step  in  and defend  their  teammates.
 Williams  appeared  to swing  his arm at  Bogut as the  two briefly shoved one
 another before order was eventually restored.
 
 Matthews,  Williams and  Green were  all ejected  from the  game, with  Bogut,
 Aldridge and Freeland each handed technical fouls.
 
 Williams  will serve  his suspension when the Blazers host the New York Knicks
 on Monday, while Bogut will sit out Tuesday's game at New Orleans.
