Tucker threw the elbow to the throat. Now he gets to miss a game.

Maybe I'm a homer but it sure looked like Griffin swung at Tucker too.

Phoenix Suns forward P.J. Tucker has been suspended one game without pay for elbowing Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin in the chin. See the play above.

The incident occurred with 5:28 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Clippers’ 112-105 win over the Suns on Monday, March 10, at Staples Center.

Tucker will serve his suspension on Wednesday, March 12, when the Suns host the Cleveland Cavaliers at US Airways Center.
