Lakers coach Brown suspended one game Add to ...

The Los Angeles Lakers will be without head coach Mike Brown on Monday for a key game against the Philadelphia 76ers after he was suspended and fined by the National Basketball Association.

Brown, in his first season with the Lakers, drew a one-game suspension and $25,000 fine for making contact with a game official and failing “to leave the court in a timely manner” following his ejection during the fourth quarter of Saturday’s 96-87 loss to the Utah Jazz, the league said.

Brown received two quick technicals for arguing Pau Gasol was fouled by Utah's Earl Watson.

The surprising 76ers (17-7) lead the Atlantic Division while the Lakers (14-10) hold down second place in the Pacific.
