Watch: Knicks' Acy ejected for throwing a punch at John Wall
Friday December 26th, 2014

New York Knicks forward Quincy Acy has been suspended one game for committing a flagrant foul 2 against Washington Wizards guard John Wall on Christmas, the NBA announced on Friday.

With 5:31 remaining in Thursday's game, Acy was whistled for a hard foul that knocked Wall to the ground. Wall stood up and pushed Acy in the chest, and Acy appeared to take a swing at Wall before holding back. The two were then separated by players and officials. Acy was ejected and Wall received a technical foul.

Wall was also fined $15,000 for "escalating the incident" by shoving Acy, according to the league.
