Frustrations are finally starting to boil over for the Bucks, owners of the league’s worst record.
First, it was Ersan Ilyasova earning a one-game suspension for shoving the Kings’ Reggie Evans on Wednesday. Last night, it was O.J. Mayo’s turn. The league announced Saturday afternoon that Mayo has been suspended for Saturday’s game versus the Wizards for striking New Orleans’ Greg Stiemsma on Friday night.

As the video displays, Mayo takes a swing at Stiemsma’s throat after the big man appeared to add a little extra elbow to his screen. Mayo was issued a flagrant two and ejected with 1:52 remaining in the first quarter.
