NEW YORK (AP) -- The NBA has suspended Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd for one game without pay for his aggressive conduct toward a referee.

His actions came during Wednesday night's 129-118 home loss to Sacramento. Kidd is to serve his suspension Friday night when the Bucks play at Orlando.

Kidd was assessed a technical foul and ejected with 1:49 left in the game. The league on Friday cited him for ''pursuing and confronting'' the official, slapping the ball out of his hands and not leaving the court in a timely manner when ejected.
