Blazers guard Miller upset about one-game suspension


Posted Dec 8 2010 5:40PM

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Trail Blazers guard Andre Miller is critical of the suspension that ended a consecutive games-played streak that dated back to 2003.

Miller missed Tuesday's 106-99 victory over the Suns because of the league-imposed one-game suspension for making "excessive and unnecessary contact" with Clippers forward Blake Griffin in a game Sunday.

The suspension snapped Miller's consecutive games streak at 632, the longest among active NBA players. He had not missed a game since Jan. 24, 2003.

Miller told reporters Wednesday the suspension wasn't justified. He says it showed that the league favors younger players and was without consideration for his accomplishment.
