Default Spurs Contact League About Barbosa Hit

SAN ANTONIO -- In a playoff series already filled with physical play, the San Antonio Spurs are claiming one player from the rival Phoenix Suns should be disciplined for actions in the third quarter of Tuesday evening's Game 2 victory.

KSAT 12 Sports has learned the Spurs have contacted league officials regarding a play involving Suns guard Leandro Barbosa and Spurs guard Manu Ginobili, and have asked for Barbosa to be suspended.

With 1:42 remaining in the quarter, Ginobili and Barbosa bacame tangled up while going for a rebound and fell to the floor. According to sources in the organization, Spurs officials contacted the league to complain about Barbosa hitting Ginobili in the face with an open hand, then slamming his head on the court.

KSAT 12 Sports has learned the league reviewed the play in question and that no action would be taken.

Spurs officials would not officially comment.

We are really pushing it right now. We already know Grant Hill is very likely not to play tonight, and now we are trying to get rid of Barbosa? It's a competitive series and there are going to be hard plays. The Spurs FO just needs to let both teams play a fair series.

Horry gets Nash, Barbs gets Manu... I'd say it all cancels out in the end.
