It appeared the ref moved towards Livingston, so the National Basketball Association suspended Kirkland one week for his role in the incident as well.

The NBA has reportedly suspended Golden State Warriors guard Shaun Livingston for one game after he got into a heated and physical confrontation with referee Courtney Kirkland during Sunday's win over the Miami Heat.

As part of the incident, Livingston and Kirkland bumped heads, and Livingston was assessed a technical foul and ejected for making contact with a game official.

The Warriors (18-6) already planned to sit Livingston for tonight's game against the New Orleans Pelicans (12-11) for rest purposes. After getting tossed from the game, Livingston untucked his white jersey as he walked off the court.

"We know Shaun is not that type of player", Warriors forward Kevin Durant said. So, you could tell that things were a little heated right there. His other ejection happened in Game 4 of the 2016 Western Conference semifinals in Portland after arguing with official Scott Foster.

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson figure to continue shouldering the majority of the backcourt minutes Monday, while Patrick McCaw and Nick Young will likely see additional time off the bench.
