Shaun Livingston suspended 1 game for low blow to Dirk Nowitzki - Watch

Golden State Warriors guard Shaun Livingston has been suspended one game without pay for hitting Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki in the groin, it was announced today by Rod Thorn, President, Basketball Operations.

Livingston was whistled for a flagrant-one foul on the play in the third quarter of the Warriors’ 123-110 victory.

The foul drew an immediate reaction from Nowitzki, and after the game, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban approached Warriors coach Steve Kerr and associate head coach Alvin Gentry.

Livingston explained after the game that going below the belt was an accident and not a dirty play.
