Suspension Monday For Brown, Love

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — Both Lakers coach Mike Brown and Timberwolves All-Star Kevin Love will be doing the same thing we’re all doing tonight, and that’s watching the games.

Both were suspended, it was announced today by the league, for transgressions over the weekend.

Brown has been suspended for tonight’s game in Philadelphia and fined $25,000 for making contact with a game official and failure to leave the court in a timely manner following his ejection in the Lakers’ loss to the Jazz Saturday night in Utah.

Love received a two-game suspension, without pay, for driving his foot into the upper body and face of Rockets forward Luis Scola in the Timberwolves’ win Saturday night in Minneapolis.

Did the league’s Punishment Police get it right with the fines and suspensions?
