NEW YORK -- The Indiana Pacers lost more than the game at Detroit on Thursday.
Center David Harrison was suspended one game without pay for directing obscenities toward fans, NBA senior vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson announced Friday.
The incident occurred with 10:07 remaining in the fourth period of Indiana's 88-83 loss to Detroit at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Harrison will serve his suspension Friday when the Pacers play the Atlanta Hawks at Conseco Fieldhouse.
A 7-footer out of Colorado, Harrison has played in 42 games this season and is averaging 4.9 points and 3.6 rebounds.
