NEW YORK (AP) - Cleveland’s Dahntay Jones has been suspended for one game by the NBA for striking Toronto’s Bismack Biyombo in the groin.

The league also fined Raptors coach Dwane Casey $25,000 on Sunday for his criticisms of the officiating.

Biyombo remained on his knees on the court after time expired in Game 3 on Saturday night after Jones hit him with 17.6 seconds remaining. The little-used reserve will miss Game 4 of the series Monday night.

Casey’s comments, including his belief that Biyombo isn’t getting enough calls, came in his postgame press conference following the Raptors’ 99-84 victory. Cleveland leads the series 2-1.
