On Saturday, Milwaukee Bucks guard O.J. Mayo was banned for one game by the NBA after he punched New Orleans Pelicans center Greg Stiemsma in the throat, in an incident that left many fans and price per head sportsbooks very surprised.
The incident took place with 1:52 left in the first quarter of Milwaukee’s 112-104 loss on Friday to New Orleans. Price per head sportsbooks saw that Mayo got tangled up with Stiemsma as he was trying to get around a screen set by the big man.
“Certainly we don’t want to respond the way O.J. did,” Milwaukee coach Larry Drew said before the Bucs played the Wizards. “We want to be a little more under control.”
Mayo was given a flagrant foul 2 and ejected from the game, and pay per head services saw how problematic this situation proved to be for the team and the player.
It was the second game in a row that the Bucs – who have the worst record in the league – had a player miss a game because he punched an opponent. Forward Ersan Ilyasova did not play in the 112-104 loss on Friday night at New Orleans after he punched the Sacramento Kings’ Reggie Evans in the stomach on Wednesday night, and price per head sportsbooks found this incident to be just as surprising as the most recent one with Mayo.
“Two unfortunate suspensions,” Drew said. “If you are around this thing long enough, you will experience things that just seem to happen in the NBA.”
“Emotions get high, and both incidents were two isolated incidents,” he said. “It’s just from being competitive, and in Ersan Ilyasova’s case, playing against a physical guy.”
