Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike Brown has been suspended one game and fined $25,000 for making contact with a referee, according to NBA.com.

The incident reportedly occurred in the fourth quarter of the Lakers 96-87 loss to the  Utah Jazz on Feb. 4. Brown made contact with a game official and failed to leave the court in a timely matter following his ejection, according to NBA.com.

He will serve his suspension tonight as the Lakers play the Philadelphia 76ers. The Lakers are currently 14-10 this season in Brown’s first year as head coach.
