Stojakovic brushed official against Memphis

NEW YORK -- Peja Stojakovic of the Sacramento Kings was
suspended for one game by the NBA on Wednesday for making improper
contact with a game official.

Stojakovic, who scored a career-high 41 points in the Kings'
114-97 victory over Memphis Tuesday night's game, brushed official
Bernie Fryer with 1:17 remaining in the second period and received
a technical foul.

"I overreacted on that," Stojakovic said. "I apologized to
him at halftime."

Stojakovic will miss the Kings' game on Christmas Day against
the Dallas Mavericks.
