Robin Lopez knew punishment was coming and he was right.

The center was nailed with a one-game suspension without pay for his altercation with Raptors forward Serge Ibaka on Tuesday night in Toronto. He served the suspension Wednesday against the visiting Pistons.

(Said Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg:) “He’s got a fire to him that you just don’t ever want to take away. This game gets very competitive obviously, it gets heated at times. That happened [Tuesday] night. It’s unfortunate what went down, but we’ve all got Robin’s back.’’
