Rockets forward docked a game check
James drove toward the basket and was fouled by Howard during the second quarter of Toronto's 112-92 victory Friday night. The players exchanged words before Howard approached James and shoved the ball into his face. James was restrained by his teammates. Both received a technical, and Howard was ejected.
Howard will serve his suspension Sunday night when the Rockets host the Denver Nuggets.
