Celtics’ Williams suspended 1 game for bumping referee


BOSTON (AP) — The NBA has suspended Celtics forward Grant Williams for one game without pay for using inappropriate language and making contact with a referee. The league says he will serve the suspension when Boston hosts the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night. Williams was given a technical foul and ejected in the fourth quarter of the Celtics’ 120-102 loss at Chicago on Monday night. He was called for an offensive blocking foul while defending Zach LaVine. He then jumped in protest and made what crew chief Marc Davis told a pool reporter after the game was “intentional physical contact” with referee Cheryl Flores.
