ESPN: Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom was suspended one game without pay for flagrantly fouling Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen on Sunday, NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson announced Tuesday.
With 2:56 remaining in the fourth period of the Lakers’ 110-91 loss to the Celtics, Odom threw himself into Allen and knocked him to the floor.
“I don’t know what Odom was thinking,” Allen said Sunday. “I got the rebound and he tackled me. I know this is Sunday, but this is the wrong field.”
Odom will serve the suspension Jan. 4 when the Lakers host the Philadelphia 76ers.
