Sacramento Kings guard Darren Collison will be suspended without pay for the first eight games of the 2016-17 NBA regular season after his recent guilty plea on a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery.

Collison will be allowed to participate in Kings exhibition games and practices but will miss Sacramento’s opening eight games after he received three years of informal probation and a 20-day jail sentence for a May incident involving his wife at their home in the Sacramento suburb of Granite Bay, California. The suspension will cost Collison a total of $380,324 in lost salary.

Al Horford’s 3-point attempt with 1:18 remaining seemed to come after the 24-second clock had expired in a five-point game. Instead, Celtics rookie Semi Ojeleye tapped out a rebound as Bucks players motioned for a whistle and Terry Rozier hustled to secure the ball.

After attempting just 10 shots in Tuesday’s Game 5 loss to the Boston Celtics, Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo vowed to come out more aggressively in Thursday’s Game 6 in Milwaukee.

“It’s on me,” Antetokounmpo said. “As I said, I had open shots, but they wasn’t my shots, so I didn’t feel comfortable to take them. I think my teammates did a great job finding me, but come the next game, in Game 6, I got to be more aggressive, make more plays because definitely my teammates need me.”
