The league issued the penalty Friday. “We are respectful of the league,” Budenholzer said. “It’s a tough job they have. They take the safety of our players, the spirit of the game, seriously. I’m just going to be respectful of their decision.”

* Thabo Sefolosha missed his fourth straight game with a left groin injury. Tim Hardaway Jr. started.

“Tim is playing out of his mind right now. He’s the catalyst.” – Kent Bazemore on Tim Hardaway Jr.
