Chris Paul not concerned with potential suspension
Chris Paul doesn’t think he’s in any danger of being suspended for Game 2 of the Houston Rockets’ series against the Golden State Warriors.
Paul was ejected late in Houston’s Game 1 loss amid suggestions that he made contact with an official. The point guard said Monday that he isn’t worried about a suspension, believing that any contact was incidental and not worthy of further punishment.
Chris Paul said he isn’t concerned about a potential suspension despite NBA determining that he “aggressively” approached and made contact with official. “Nah,” he said. “If we did [make contact], it was incidental.”

Paul seems correct on this, but a potential suspension was the subject of some debate after the game. The NBA will have the last word here, but the incident simply didn’t seem serious enough to warrant any further discipline.
