Spurs F Bowen suspended one game
6 minutes ago

NEW YORK (TICKER) —San Antonio Spurs forward Bruce Bowen was suspended one game without pay for striking New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul with his leg, the NBA announced Friday.

The incident occurred following a foul call on Paul with 5:15 remaining in the third quarter of the Spurs’ 100-75 loss to the Hornets on Wednesday.

Bowen will serve his suspension Friday when the Spurs visit the Detroit Pistons.

Of all the suspensions he should have had I'm a Hornets fan and don't think this one is a big deal. The second kick people thought they saw was actually both of them disengaging, Bowen backing up and Paul lying back to the floor just look both of them with their hands up. Just from that angle it looked like he had pushed Paul back to the floor. Trust me if something had actually happened Paul would have been T'd up for nonstop whining, he tends to do that.

Just type "bruce bowen chris paul" in YouTube and you'll find plenty.

Seems to me like CP3 started the thing though.

yup definitely not worth suspension, Paul is more at fault than Bowen. Looks like he pulled a Hodge on Bowen though this one seems unintentional. If you look at the direction the ball is going he's trying to regain control of it but his hand ends up in Bowen's junk. Bowen responds with a little knee to the head. Then Paul was getting up and Bowen was backing up; when the ref blew the whistle they both put their hands up and Paul lied back on the ground. Unfortunately for Bowen the first camera angle made it look like he pushed him back down to the ground

Strangely, ref was right, people who reviewed the play with video evidence got it completely wrong. They were probably just influenced by fan pressure

And I am a Hornets fan

I love Chris Paul, and I hate Bruce Bowen, but it looked like Paul flopped. Finally though! Bowen gets something he doesn't deserve.

Strangely, I really don't care whether Bowen was guilty or not (and he may not have been). He's deserved so much more punishment in the past, I really wouldn't care if they gave him a suspension for looking at the ref funny.

That camera angle does not show what Bowen did. He purposely kicked Paul while he was on the ground. I think he was suspended because the NBA is looking at this in the context of other dirty plays he has not been suspended for. I am glad they are doing this so that he and the Spurs know he will be suspended if he does his usual crap in the playoffs.

But.. but.. but.. David Stern and the NBA always favors the Spurs!!!

So much for that theory, this is probably one of the few times Bowen actually did something intentionally dirty

No that camera angle is clear as day it was a pretty innocent play. As a big fan of Paul since his Wake days I knew right away it wasn't a bad play because he didn't go crazy afterwards, even with the offensive foul call.

Amazing that this is the call that finally gets Bowen to miss a game
