NBA suspends Shaquille O'Neal for three games for throwing a punch

Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) _ Shaquille O'Neal of the Los Angeles Lakers was suspended for three games without pay and fined $15,000 by the NBA on Monday for throwing a punch at Brad Miller of the Chicago Bulls.

Charles Oakley of the Bulls was suspended for two games and fined $10,000, and Miller got one game and $7,500 for the fight, which occurred in the fourth quarter of the Bulls' 106-104 overtime victory on Saturday.

Miller and Oakley were both charged with flagrant fouls, which carry an automatic one-game suspension. Oakley's foul gave him six flagrant-foul points for the season, one over the allowable total, resulting in an additional one-game suspension.
