Hollins gets two-game suspension

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Ryan Hollins has been suspended for
two games after separate run-ins with Mavericks Dirk Nowitzki and
DeShawn Stevenson on Monday.

Hollins punched Stevenson while boxing him out on a free
throw in the second quarter. He then struck Nowitzki in the head
with his left forearm late in the fourth quarter, drawing a
Flagrant-2 foul and an ejection.

After the game, Nowitzki called Hollins “a little out of
control, but that’s part of the game.”

Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis said he liked Hollins’
aggressiveness, but not some of his decision-making.

Hollins has been starting for the Timberwolves in recent
weeks and is averaging 6.8 points and 3.0 rebounds per game.
