 DALLAS (AP) -Mavericks forward Josh Howard was suspended Friday for the first two games of the regular season, punishment for a fight with Sacramento center Brad Miller earlier in the week.
Howard was ejected from an exhibition Tuesday against the Kings after delivering a forearm to the back of Miller's neck. He also pushed Miller, who had shoved Dallas guard Devin Harris to the ground.
NBA Executive Vice President Stu Jackson said Friday that Howard escalated the confrontation by running across the court toward Miller and engaging with other Kings' players.
The Mavericks open the season at Cleveland on Oct. 31.
